Lochlyn Shawl is a triangular shawl knit sideways. The shawl is rich in texture and colorwork but easy to knit. The two colorways used are simply alternated every two rows, with only one color used per row. The broken garter pattern and the color changes are uncomplicated but interesting to work. A deep, garter stitch border finishes off this soft and tactile wrap.

If you would like a cowl instead, check out Lochie Cowl pattern.

The pattern includes both Charts and written instruction.

The shawl is easily adjustable to any size.
