Starting with a simple granny stripe pattern that forms triangles in solid and relief, the pattern slowly transforms into more open triangles ending with a simple triangular lace edging.
The simple, unfussy lace and undyed yarn combine to make a modern, elegant shawl that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Length (on neck edge)145cm/57in
Width (at deepest point) 63m/25in
Shawl can be made bigger or smaller by adding/removing rows from the sections. As it is a right-angle triangle, width will increase/decrease with the length. Instructions for this are given in the pattern.

Slightly asymmetric triangular shawl is worked from the small point to the long end in rows that increase in pattern on the neck edge.
