Libby’s Shawl is composed of three lacey triangles knit simultaneously from the top down. This creates a shawl that curves nicely around your neck and shoulders and stays in place whether worn open or wrapped more snugly.

The shawl is worked from a small tab at the center back/top, and worked outwards/down to the edge, making it easy to knit the shawl till you almost run out of yarn or until it is the size you want. The sample is worked in fingering weight yarn, but any weight yarn would work, though that would change how much yarn is needed. A single skein of fingering yarn created the sample shawl which is 14” deep, and 48” along the top edge, from wingtip to wingtip.

The pattern is charted, but includes written line-by-line instructions for the first few rows of the chart to get you started. The pattern is appropriate for intermediate and advanced knitters who can read a chart.

Special thanks to Evelyn A. Clark for her book, Knitting Lace Triangles (now available in a second edition), which inspired this shawl.
