This beautiful triangular shawl combines garter stitch and lace. It is worked in fingering weight yarn in two colours. The sample shown combines a speckled sock yarn and a luxurious cashmere blend to highlight the fascinating interplay of colour & texture.

Colour blocks, stripes and elegant lace create an engaging knit and cosy-to-wear item.

The shawl is worked sideways on the bias from one tip to the opposite end. It’s fun to knit and its centred bottom tip makes it easy to wear.
The pattern comes in fully written out as well as charted instructions.

This shawl design is a tribute to my beloved grandma Martha, the beauty of colours, nature & handmade items and how they are positively affecting our lives everyday.
I hope you‘ll enjoy knitting this pattern just as much as I did!

The pattern was created in collaboration with Kitterly. They have put together some beautiful kits for you with the original Hedgehog Fibres yarn that I used for my sample!

length along top edge: approx. 203cm/80”
depth: approx. 54cm/21.3”

Designed for 2 contrasting colours. Allow approx. 437yds/400m of fingering weight yarn and 328yds/300m lace weight yarn (total of approx. 765yds/700m) to get the size of the sample. The pattern is easy to adapt for other weights and yardages.
Yarn used for sample:
Hedgehog Fibres, 1 skein of Sock (fingering weight, 100g = 437yds/400m) in colourway Construct (A), 1 skein of Cashmere Merino (lace weight, 50g = 328yds/300m) in colourway Whisper (B).

Not critical for this project but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size.
Gauge on sample: 22 sts x 42 rows = 10x10cm/4x4“ in garter stitch after blocking
Needles used for sample: 3.5 mm / US 4
