This modern and fun triangular shawl features various contrasting inserts in garter stitch and a beautiful lace in a background of two-colour stripes.

Worked sideways on the bias from one tip to the opposite edge makes this shawl easy to knit and wear.

This pattern was designed for fingering weight yarn in 2 main colours and a third contrasting colour for the inserts. It would also make a great stash-buster for your minis or small leftovers when making each insert a different colour. There are 8 inserts in my original sample, but the instructions also include general tips if you wish to add some more or place them differently or even change the size.

This pattern is a highly addictive knit with an eye-catching result. The finished shawl will add a fun and cosy item to your favourite wardrobe staple.

Fully written row-by-row as well as charted instructions are provided so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
