This pattern is a narrow triangular shawl that looks like a scarf, knit side-to-side. It has a border that is knit at the same time as the shawl and, due to the shawl’s construction, you will be able do maximize the amount of yarn used and avoid leftover yarn. So have your kitchen scale ready! The entire shawl is knit holding two strands of lace weight yarn, or one strand of fingering weight yarn. The triangle is knit in garter stitch and the border is knit in fisherman’s rib and slipped stitches, with a bobble at the end. I’ll give you the option to add an i-cord edge to the border, in case you prefer a less curly edge. You can see the difference on this blog post. The gray version doesn’t have an i-cord edge, and the orange one does.
At least 100g/874yards of lace weight yarn held double (on my sample I used Oxalis by Garna colorway Gråbrun) or 100g/430yards of fingering weight yarn.
- 3.5mm/US 4 (or size needed to get gauge)
- Stitch markers
- Tapestry needle
- Kitchen scale
Gauge in garter stitch 3.5mm/US 4 needle
The gauge for this pattern isn’t super important. As long as there is some drape to your knitted fabric, you will like the finished product.
27 sts and 40 rows = 10cm/4” (after blocking)
For 100g of lace yarn and with gauge the shawl measures 140cm/55" in length and 31cm/12 1/5" in depth.
