Liliwen is a classic triangular shawl, knit from the centre of the top edge, and worked as two triangles out towards the lower edge. The shawl has a garter stitch edging, 3 stitches wide, thus the first and last 3 stitches of every row are always knit. By knitting every first stitch, you create small bumps in the ends what make the edges look much more nicer.
Triangle shawls are my on-the-go projects, as they are mindless and relaxing knits. Whether working on it at home or carrying it everywhere with you, enjoy it!
