Mint Chocolate is a shallow triangular shawl knit sideways. There is just something about the combination of striped garter stitch and openwork that appeals to me: Lazy mindless knitting, together with patterning that requires a tad more attention. The perfect project for me!

The pattern contains both fully written out as well as charted instructions for the lace. The lace section is worked on both wrong and right side rows. However, increases and decreases are only worked every 4th row, making it quite suitable for new “true lace” knitters.

Difficulty level
The lace in this pattern is worked on both RS and WS rows. Stitches used include knit, purl, yo, kfb, k2tog, and a centered double decrease. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter.

The Dutch Yarn Barn Double Dutch (100% Texel wool; 200 m (218 yds) / 50 g) in the following colors and amounts:
MC: 400 m (437 yds) / 100 g in Linden Green
CC: 200 m (218 yds) / 50 g in Madder/Indigo brown

Substitute wool fingering or sport weight yarn of comparable thickness, in solid or tonal colorways for a similar result.
