I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
A lot of triangular shawls have you cast on a few stitches at the center of the neck, then work outward, each row getting progressively longer, ending with the cast off being the two non-top edges. I find myself very excited at the beginning, but getting progressively less patient with the longer and longer rows as the initial infatuation fades.
This scarf begins with stitches cast on for the lace edge along the two lower sides, then stitches are decreased to produce a triangle shape.
Pattern includes charts and written directions, and stitch count totals for every row.
I also include the tips how to make larger or smaller shawl and the yardage needed.
