Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on
  • bind off
  • increases and decreases (explained in pattern)

Pattern Description:

Bermuda Triangle is an easy top-down shawl that gets a graphic punch when knit in high-contrast colors. It can also be knit in low-contrast colors for a completely different effect. The use of slipped stitches and two-row stripes means you only use one color in each row - easy! Bermuda Triangle was worked at a very loose gauge to give the fabric excellent drape. An optional horizontal braid, deep ribbed lower border and garter stitch bottom band add some textural interest as well. This is one Bermuda Triangle that you won't get lost in!
