This simple triangular shawl begins at the top center and increases toward the border. You can knit this shawl with any yarn weight and continue the shape to make it as large as you wish. Three skeins of West Wool Tandem is enough to knit the DK weight version or two skeins of West Wool Bicycle will make a thinner fingering weight version. Boneyard Shawl was my first Westknits design published in 2009 named after the Boneyard Arts Festival in Urbana, Illinois. It was the shawl that started it all! Once you knit the Boneyard Shawl, you can experiment with stripes and textures as you venture into the woolly world of Westknits shawl knitting.
Try a striped Boneyard Shawl with extra edge increases for an elongated wingspan. Pattern variation here!
Finished Measurements 70″ / 178cm wingspan length, 30″ / 76cm from CO to BO edge measured along center spine. Measurements taken after blocking.
The Finished Measurements are similar for a fingering weight version or the thicker DK weight version. You can customize the shawl to any size by starting the border after any pattern repeat.
