Robin’s tree

To match the Robin sweater I designed this mini triangular shawlette for babies and toddlers. The shawlette starts at the middle edge, working upwards in rows, while decreasing on both sides in every row.

A smaller version of the lacy pine motive as used for the sweaters yoke is used here. You can decide to skip the lacy motive and stay in garter stitch through the complete shawl.

An i-cord is worked to bind off the live shawl stitches and close the shawl later.

Size:one size, long side of the triangle (upper side of shawl): 65 cm 25 ½” height of triangle: 20 cm 8”

Gauge: 28 sts and 52 rows = 10 cm 4” in garter stitch pattern.
