Stutzen is a triangular shawl, inspired by the calf gusset patterns in traditional twisted stitch stockings, called stutzen. These cables are created with traveling slipped stitches worked over a striped garter stitch backdrop. A lace border flows from the cable pattern and ends with a scalloped edge.

The shawl begins at the center top with a garter stitch tab, and is worked out to the edging. Eyelet increases at the center spine and outer edges create the triangular shape.

Only one color is worked at a time, the pattern is created by slipping the main color stitches over the contrasting color rows.
