I wrote the pattern for the Asymmetrical Triangle Shawl as I was working my way through shawl geometry. The shawl is knit by casting on 300 stitches for the long edge and gradually decreases to the center point.

The pattern includes clearly written instructions that have been thoroughly test knit and tech edited.

For more information on shawl geometry please visit my tutorial here:

The shawl is knit using 950 yards of fingering weight yarn. I used four full skeins and the point was made using those precious koigu leftovers from Charlotte’s Web Shawl.

Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
