  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Collect a colorful pile of fingering weight yarns to knit this playfully geometric shawl. Two skeins of the main color are striped with at least three contrast colors as you work slip stitch triangle motifs. This sideways triangle begins at the small tip and increases gradually toward the wide edge. The overall size is long and not as wide as many other Westknits shawls.

    Drape the wider edge on your shoulder first and then wrap the long tail around your neck for a stylish geometric shawl. You can bind off early for the small size, which features three contrast colors, or continue knitting more repeats for the large size, which features six contrast colors.
