I had the pleasure to call San Angelo, Texas my home for about a year. This small Texas city is steeped in rich history and a surprising art scene. While living there, I fell in love with mesquite artwork inlaid with turquoise. There is something magical about this combination.

This fun triangular shawl is worked from the center out featuring short rows, wrapped stitches, and a fun mosaic colorwork motif.

p.s. If you like the shirt I have on, you can purchase your own here!

MEASUREMENTS
Depth: 30” (76 cm)

GAUGE
20 sts / 36 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch using US 5 (3.75 mm) after wet blocking
Exact gauge is not critical, but because the shawl requires nearly the entire skein of each color, deviation from the gauge will affect the size of the shawl and yarn requirements.

  • CC: “Hosta Blue” 1 skein (approximately 395 yds (361 m); 88 g (3.7 oz) needed)

Or a similar fingering weight yarn. Choose solid or mostly solid colored yarn that has good stitch definition and select colors that have enough contrast to allow the colorwork to stand out.
