The asymmetrical triangle-shaped shawl is designed for the beautiful yarn Nature’s Luxury On Stage Long Métrage. I highly recommend this exquisite yarn for this pattern! It is wonderful soft and cozy and provides very beautiful colors!

This is my third collaboration with Nature’s Luxury. Thank you very much again, Danica!
Kits for this shawl are available at Nature’s Luxury: Kits with minis and Kits without minis.

This triangular shawl starts at the right tip and increases are worked on one side. It is mainly worked in brioche with two blocks of an easy lace pattern. A small lace part and tiny tassels make an eye-catching finish.
