This trendy large triangle shawl features a white cross and tassels on both sides. This black/white shawl matches everything. If you, like me choose a wool-acrylics yarn blend, you’ll have a wonderfully warm accessory.

How I came up with the design? My idea was to design a basic over-sized shawl knitting pattern, and make it look completely different by embellishing it in many different ways.

First of all, I think it looks great without anything added. Because the stockinette shawl curls at the neck, you get an automatic collar and it looks almost like a cardigan. I love it.

If you use variegated yarn, this will be a treasure in your wardrobe.

VARIATIONS IN SHAWL DESIGN
My latest variations is to add a finish of 2 rows of crochet in fuzzy duo-tone yarn to the outside of it. This gives it a nice finish. I added a few photos to show this.

The first thing I added when designing the pattern, however, beaded tassels. That has been proven a great idea. Besides their whimsy, the tiny bit of extra weight helps the ends of the triangle scarf to hang better.

The second design element I added was the cross. It can be applied afterwards or interwoven into the knitting pattern. Do whatever is easiest for you. The pattern will describe both methods. It is shown in ‘bold-statement’-size. This makes it a bit Gothic. If you want to make the cross a tat smaller and to be more Christian, that’s possible too. The pattern indicates you how-to vary the size of the cross.

More variations coming up. See blog for detail.

Everything is simple about this shawl. It’s a perfect ‘bring along’ project and a great knitting beginners pattern. Easy to knit.

BTW I am a beginner pattern writer, so any helpful suggestions on how to make the pattern better are very welcome and will be incorporated into the pattern as we move forward. Thank you in advance for your help!
