This fingering weight shawl begins with the large triangular section in the center. Slipped stitches form graphic stripes as you work with one color at a time. The diamond motif is picked up from the first section as you introduce a new contrast color. Finally, a garter stitch border frames the finished shawl for a striking statement piece. Choose one main color combined with three contrast colors to knit this beautiful shawl.

Finished Measurements: 82” / 208cm wingspan length, 38” / 97cm along center point. Measurements taken after blocking.

The yardage on the mini skeins may be incorrectly labeled as 212m (218yds), but the correct length of the LBA Super Sock Mini Skeins is 212m (232yds). The yarn contains the correct length. It’s just the label that may have a print error on it.
