The Optical Triangle shawl is a perfect coverup for fall and winter, and fans out at the same time as it expands in width to create an interesting triangular shape. The shawl uses easy short rows (no wraps required) and very simple (ssk, yo) eyelets interspersed with striping.
One skein of Silk Dream and one skein of Merino Cloud are recommended. However, as in all our knitalongs, you can join with any Artyarns yarn, as long as you have 800 yards.

It’s the perfect excuse to try the delectable Silk Dream, 100% silk yarn with a hint of metallic. Alternate it with Merino Cloud, our beautiful Merino/Cashmere blend as shown in this unique shawl. We suggest 7 color combinations (model is shown in 348 in Merino Cloud and 1024 in Silk Dream), but the options are limitless.

Here’s how to join the knitalong:
Purchase your Artyarns yarn (1 skein of Merino Cloud and 1 skein of Silk Dream) allowing yourself enough time so you can start on
September 10. As long as you have the yarn the knitalong is completely free to join.

Hit “Cast On” to create your project page. It is best to do this after you have your yarn in hand and can add photos of your yarn.
Fill in all the information on your project page.

On or about September 10, you will receive Part 1 of the Optical Triangle Knitalong. When you complete Part 1 , you will be required to post a photo on your project page to receive Part 2. When you complete Part 2, you will need to post a photo on your project page to receive Part 3.

DEADLINES: There is NO DEADLINE to finish the shawl so no pressure. But there is a deadline of November 10 to complete Part 1 (which ends with just 75 sts) and join the knitalong.
