Kerria Shawl is a slightly asymmetric triangular shawl in 3 colors. It starts from one point and grows by increasing on both edges. Alternating the three colours, as well as switching from stockinette stitch to the lace pattern, gives the shawl an interesting texture and promises easy yet engaging knitting. To finish off, an I-cord border is worked and tassels can be attached if wanted.
