HeartStrings knitting pattern #A61
Start this lusciously fluid triangle shawl with a stunning 10" wide lace edging for a different take on triangle shawl construction.

Knitted in Tilli Tomas Beaded Lace and Demi Plié
Get an Edge to Start Shawl is designed for knitting with a yarn plied with beads and a companion unbeaded plain yarn. The beaded yarn is featured in the wide diamond edging. The unbeaded yarn is used to fill in the triangular body of the shawl with a lacy V-diagonal trellis stitch that both keeps the silhouette of the triangle shawl shallower than usual and naturally extends into an attractive collar.
This shallower triangle shawl can be more flattering to your derriere when wearing the shawl traditionally with the point hanging down center of back.
Another attractive way to wear this shawl is upside down from the traditional.
A bonus is that the shawl is entirely reversible!
60" wide as measured across widest distance by 40" length at center back including turned-back collar. Lace or light fingering weight yarns as follows: Yarn plied with beads (used for edging and upper border): 495 yards. Coordinating unbeaded yarn (used for body of shawl): 450 yards.
