This triangle shawl knit on a bias, is an exploration of knitting as an act of meditation. While the linen stitch is the same throughout the body, slowly watch the colours transition from one to the next, creating a beautiful garment that appears to be woven. Make this shawl as subtle or as bold as your heart desires. It’s a fabulous stash buster! The shawl is completed with a knit-on lace border.
