Quadrangle Spires

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This architecturally inspired wrap begins in the center with four triangular sections that modularly join together to form a square. Each section is seamlessly picked up from the previous section. Once the central square foundation is created, stitches are picked up along two corners of the shape for the wingspan spires. You can customize the final length of your shawl by binding off early or knit more repeats for a long luxurious wrap.

    I featured three skeins of West Wool Bicycle as the main color with six Spincycle colorways for a fascinating striped knitting experience. Customize the contrast however you like by choosing similar types of self-striping yarns or dive into your stash and make those colors pop!

    77″ / 196cm wingspan length, 23″ / 58cm wide.
    Measurements taken after blocking.

    Fingering Weight
    Spincycle is listed as a sport weight yarn, but you can use it mixed with fingering weight yarn for this design. It creates a beautiful shawl fabric with crisp stitches.

    MC - 1100yds / 1006m or 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn (100g skeins)
    CC - 1100yds / 1006m or 6 skeins of Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool (50g skeins)

    If you are using different CC yarns and they are 100g skeins or balls, then you will need only 3 skeins or balls (100g each) for your CC yardage.

    SECTIONS 1 – 4 require approximately 10-15g of CC for each section in the center of the shawl. SECTION 1 – 4 require approximately 55g of MC total.
    SECTION 5 & 6 require approximately 204g of CC total and about 220g of MC (including the MC I-cord BO).

    US 4 / 3.5mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

    2 stitch markers, tapestry needle

    24 sts & 46 rows = 4″ / 10cm in 2 rows garter stitch + 2 rows stockinette stitch after blocking

    There are notes included in the pattern to customize the length of the shawl. There are photos and video links in the pattern to demonstrate the construction techniques.
