Combinations of knits and purls create beautiful geometric texture in the triangular Yellow Brick Shawl. Starting with a garter tab cast-on of two stitches, this shawl is knit from the neck down in a delicious alpaca-merino-silk- blend yarn. Use a circular needle to accommodate the stitches as you increase and to avoid losing your needles when you set down the work.
