The shawl begins at the short edge of the triangle with a sharply pointed edging featuring a honeycomb pattern that uses slipped stitches to blend the contrast organically into the grey. This honeycomb patterning is repeated in the grey, making the most of the interlocking nature of hexagons to create larger patterns from the smaller motif. The triangle is simply shaped by decreasing along one edge, and, as the shawl narrows the stitch patterns gradually become less open and smaller in scale. Towards the narrow point, the contrast colour is reintroduced to balance the border opposite with a delicate surface pattern worked against the grey background.

This pattern was designed for the 2018 Ysolda Club and was exclusive to the club until August 2019. Sign ups for this year’s club are closed but to be the first to find out about future clubs sign up for my newsletter.
