I wanted to play with the simplicity of Flotus (one of my most popular patterns) in a different way: by making one in my favorite shawl shape! It’s a new take on an old Flotus!

approximately 570 yds/521 m total fingering-weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit Sock in Gates of the Arctic (MC, 300 yds/274 m) & a Sixlet of Smarties in a rainbow (cA-F, 240 yds/219 m total, 40 yds/36.5 m each).

Sixlet Rainbow colors used:
cA: Liberally Bleeding Heart
cB: Peachberry Sparkle
cC: Sunshine
cD: Canopy
cE: Aquamarine
cF: Hydrangea

20 sts & 30 Rs= 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch worked flat, measured after blocking.

Asymmetric triangle: 84”/213 cm x 45”/114 cm x 65”/165 cm, measured after blocking.
