This beautiful triangular shawl features a fascinating interplay of two colours worked in garter stitch and a fine graphic mosaic motif.

It is worked sideways from tip to tip - increasing stitches for the first half of the shawl and decreasing for the second half, creating a symmetrical triangular shape, which is fun to knit and easy to wear.

Mosaic knitting is a wonderful colourwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one colour at a time. It’s easy to knit but creates eye-catching results.

The pattern includes both fully written and charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
