    Description

    A slightly asymmetrical triangle, knit from one side and decreasing down to a point.

    Perfect for leftover bits or a variegated yarn with long runs of color. Garter stitch for cushiness and simplicity and stripes for fun. You decide when and how often you want to change colors, and how many colors to use. The pattern includes a coloring page and a couple of striping suggestions.

    In designing this shawl I tried to think of a shape that I would really enjoy wearing. The one long side makes it easy to throw it over the opposite shoulder while the shorter side can hang down naturally without dipping into your tea!

    Finished measurements: approximately 112 cm and 79 cm along the "legs" of the triangle, and 51 cm deep

    Gauge: approximately 20 stitches and 40 rows to 10 cm in unstretched garter stitch

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
