About the Design
Formerly TTL Mystery Shawl 2020

This year’s TTL Mystery Shawl is a two-color asymmetrical triangle. I recommend a solid or near solid yarn for both colors. I do not recommend variegated yarns for this pattern as they tend to hide the stitch patterns. I also recommend a lot of contrast between your two colors. For example a medium green and a medium blue would not be a good choice, but a light green and a darker blue would be just right.

The TTL Mystery Shawl 2020 may be worked in any weight yarn, but keep in mind that the heavier the yarn, the more yarn you will need. The sample shawl used approximately 400 yards per color, or two colors in Jill Draper Makes Stuff Ansel, a fingering-weight yarn. Be sure to allow extra. The amount of yarn needed will vary with slight differences in personal gauge, yarn weight, fiber, and brand (even within same yarn weight category).

Although this is a shawl, it is important to obtain gauge in order to avoid running out of yarn and to have your finished shawl match the size indicated. If you are using stitch markers between repeats, check the placement at the start of each chart because stitch counts for the repeats vary.
