Simple, rhythmic knitting results in an unusual and lovely shawl in the shape of a skewed and curved triangle. Occasional rows of eyelets and ridges lend texture and add interest to the knitting process. This pattern is quite adaptable for different weights of yarn and is simple enough for newer knitters. The smaller shawlette can be worn over the shoulders or wrapped around your neck.

4” = 19-21 sts and 30-34 rows in Stocking Stitch, blocked. Precise gauge is not required for this project.
Note: Fingering weight yarn shown has recommended gauge of 26-30 sts to 4” in Stocking Stitch. Sport weight yarn shown has recommended gauge of 23-25 sts to 4” in Stocking Stitch.
