A beautiful twist stitch motif creates the romantic yet modern look of this elegant triangular shawl.

This pattern is a fun and engaging knit. Worked on the bias as a sideways triangle with an almost centred bottom tip makes it easy to knit and cosy to wear.
The finished shawl will add a beautiful favourite item to your daily wardrobe!

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

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
