  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This graphic striped shawl features three colors of fingering weight yarn. Begin in the center and knit outward with eyelet increases for the square shape in Section 1. Continue to knit the wingtips for bold stripes. The other sections are knit by picking up stitches, so you don’t have to do any seaming. The angular stripes converge into a striking geometric shawl with simple clean lines and easy to knit rows.
