This triangular shawl begins with a tiny triangle at the center of the shawl. Parallelograms are stacked on the three sides of the triangle hence the name Trianglegram. Each parallelogram shape is knit one at a time while being attached to the previous sections for an entirely seamless project. Repeat the stripes until you are ready to bind off. The small size features four colors of West Wool Bicycle and the large multi-color size features a variety of fingering weight yarns and some fluffy suri alpaca accents. Relaxing garter stitch makes this pattern easy to knit and striking to wear.

Five 100g skeins of yarn is enough to knit the large size or dive into your stash for a fun scrappy version!

Multi-color Version
You can use as many colors as you like if you prefer to knit a more scrappy multi-color version. I used mostly fingering weight yarn, but some of my stripes are sport weight suri or merino yarns. Try holding a strand of lace weight mohair together with a fingering weight yarn for a fuzzy accent stripe.
