Select one color of DK weight wool like West Wool Tandem and knit this sideways triangle. It begins at the small corner with an I-cord cast on. The I-cord continues to frame textures of moss stitch, broken ribbing, and diagonal ribbing. The textured sections are divided by easy to knit garter stitch rows, making this project suitable for beginner knitters. Four skeins of DK weight will create the large triangular size. You can easily customize the size by simply binding off early for a smaller shawl or knit more pattern repeats if you have more yarn to create a larger size. Once you complete this triangular shawl shape, try my other Dustland designs like the Dustland Sweater, Socks, or Hat!
