Meet a triangular shawl that’s as addictive to knit as it is snuggly to wear. Amberle’s squishy textural stitches bring worsted yarns to life and the repetitive pattern is easily memorized—making it much less complicated than it looks. The wide border creates a gorgeous way to showcase contrasting colors.

NOTE ABOUT YARDAGE: You will use more/less yarn depending on how loosely/tightly you wrap your stitch patterns throughout the main shawl & border. Wraps should be taut, but not tight, and should be even with the tension in the rest of your knitting. You should be able to put the tip of a finger just under the wrap but not able to put your finger through.

Some testers required only 2 skeins (instead of 3 for the border of the shawl).
