Elegantly Simple Triangle Shawl
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A33
This shawl is knit in one of those lovely laces based on the Shetland feather and fan stitch. There is so much movement and interest in the pattern that it may look more difficult to do than it really is. Starting at the tip of the shawl and increasing to whatever width you want, it becomes a lovely fan-shaped neck scarf, shoulder wrap, or full-size shawl. The bound-off long edge can be finished in your choice of dramatic points or graceful scallops.
Size to desired length/width (length will be half of width). Guidelines for laceweight yarn – 200 yards for 32" wide,
600 yards for 54", 1000 yards for 72", 6 stitches/inch, size US 5 / 3.75 mm needles suggested. Easily adjusts to other weights of yarn with corresponding adjustment in needle size and yardage. Pictured above is the shoulder wrap version knitted in a handspun 2-ply yarn of silk/merino/angora. It is really yummy and light. Charted and written instructions.
Janet P. writes —
"... I am really impressed with your ingenuity in making feather and fan into a triangular shawl. Mine is turning out lovely."
