Mutti Shawl is a top-down triangular shawl that can be worked in one or more colors. The body is made up of relaxing garter stitch, making this wrap the perfect travel project. The pattern then moves into a short mesh section before ending with an elegant yet easy lace edge. Aggressive blocking opens up the fabric and transforms this shawl into an airy wrap that can easily be draped around your shoulders to shield you from chilly air conditioning, or to keep you warm on cool summer nights.

This shawl gets its name from the German word for “mother”, which is “Mutter”, and I call my Mom “Mutti”. Seeing that she was the one who nudged me to design this shawl, I thought it would only be right to honor her with the name.

The pdf of this pattern also includes a mini-version of the main shawl called Dundee’s Mutti Shawl, which is designed for bearded dragons and small pets alike. It features the same design elements as the Mutti Shawl and is sewn together after blocking to form a bandana-shawl. Beardie Dundee is modeling his 2 mini shawls in the pictures to the left.
