THE DESIGN
“Rustic, modern, and wearable!”
When is a granny square not a square? When it’s half a square, or a triangle! Familiar yet current in Brooklyn Tweed Loft, a soft spun 2-ply fingering weight yarn that’s woolly and light, the ample 64”/163 cm wingspan of this shawl wraps you up warmly. Over a tee or tucked inside your jacket, just a pop of rustic fun!

The free pattern includes instructions for the ‘half-granny stitch’, as well as dimensions for a sized down kerchief version. Five skeins of Loft is enough for either size.


THE DETAILS
FINISHED SIZES
Scarf/Kerchief: Approx. 46”/117cm along long edge of triangle x 23”/58cm deep at center, after blocking.
Shawl: Approx. 64”/163cm along long edge of triangle x 31”/79cm deep at center, after blocking.

For a smaller triangle, stop sooner (our small window valance measured 26”/66cm along the long edge); for a larger triangle, just keep going—and adjust yarn amounts accordingly.
