This fun-to-knit, easy-to-wear triangle shawl shawl can be knit in 2 different sizes: a Larger wrap (shown in Qing Fibre Super Soft DK color Smoke) with a wingspan of 52 ½“/133.5cm or more conventionally sized Smaller shawl with a. wingspan of 46 ¼”/117.5cm. The shawl begins at the center top with 4-st St st tab. Increases are made every RS row (1 on each side of center “spine” and 1 at each side edge) to form a double-triangle shape. I-cord edges are incorporated at each side that eventually turn into free-standing I-cords at the tips that become part of the tassel embellishments. The Qing Fibers yarn is scrumptiously soft and beautifully dyed, making this they type of shawl that you will seek out and wear all the time.
