Some patterns are so addictive and entertaining to knit that it’s impossible to put down your needles. While the shawl starts growing quickly under your eyes, the only thing you want to do is keep on knitting.

Alternating the garter stitch and lace sections with an interesting rhythm so you never get bored, this asymmetric triangle shawl is an incredibly fun knit.

It’s no surprise Antarktis has been a knitters’ favourite for years. Cast on yours and you’ll soon find out why!

The English version now has both charted and written instructions!

Approximately 366 m / 400 yds of fingering weight yarn.

NEEDLE

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
