Angularity is inspired by the Minimalist movement in art and architecture. The simplicity of light and dark, shadow and form in the Minimalist movement lend themselves to knitting very readily.

Using a new technique called “Faux-tarsia”, this shawl is fun to knit and is quite simple to make – all without having to do ANY intarsia!! The shawl also has great textural quality due to the yarn alternating between being held doubled and single stranded at a bigger gauge – all adding up to a fantastic, fun, and quirky piece to add to your wardrobe!

Size: 19 inches (48 cm) along the center line of the largest point X 75 inches (190 cm) along the top edge. Size will vary due to individual gauge, yarns used, and blocking preferences.
