This asymmetrical triangular shawl is perfect for showcasing a special skein of sock yarn. Pair it with a solid or semisolid that really makes it “pop.” While the example shown uses a semisolid/solid combo, I think this shawl would look fantastic with a wildly variegated yarn as the main color! The shawl is easy and quick to knit with no purling and it can easily be made larger by adding extra repeats…just be sure you have extra yarn!
