Named after flowering hawthorn bushes, Mayblossom is an asymmetrical triangular shawl that’s worked sideways. Its triangular shape results from increases (yarn overs) worked on RS rows on the left-hand edge only. This edge is the longest side of the triangle and is the top edge when worn.

The shawl is knit flat, but a circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.

It’s worked in DK weight yarn. The pattern provides instructions for two sizes. The pattern schematic shows blocked measurements in inches and centimeters for all three sides of the shawl.
