3 different stitch patterns, 3 different colours. Terzetto is a beautiful triangular shawl that features a fascinating interplay of mosaic & lace chevrons and colour blocks.

The chevron lace in the centre, which echoes the chevrons in the mosaic pattern, creates an extra eye-catching effect.

Mosaic knitting is an easy colourwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one colour at a time.

Worked sideways and on the bias, from one tip to the opposite edge makes it fun to knit and easy to wear.

This pattern was designed in collaboration with String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn and I had the pleasure to work with their fantastic Caper Sock for my sample.

I made my sample with a fingering weight yarn with a wonderful drape. If you prefer, you could also use a different yarn weight and/or yardage since the pattern is easily adjustable in all parts.

This knit is engaging, with different sections and textures that keep your interest, and results in a beautiful cosy item.

It includes fully written row-by-row as well as charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!

length along top edge: 266 cm / 104.75“

Designed for fingering weight yarn in 3 contrasting colours. Allow approx. 1023 m / 1120 yds total to get the size of the sample. Easily adjustable for other yarn weights and/or the yardage you have available.
Yarn used for sample: String Theory Hand Dyed Yarn Caper Sock (fingering weight, 113g = 365 m / 400 yds), in colourways Elderberry (A) (1 skein used), Carina (B) (0.8 skeins = 293 m / 320 yds used) and Delft (C) (1 skein used)

Not critical for this project but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size.
