Pattern Description:

This fast shawl is worked from the top down in two stitch patterns creating an asymmetrical shape and look. One side of the triangle is worked in stockinette stitch while the other side is worked in a simple open work.

The size of this shawl can be easily adapted to a larger or smaller size by adding or subtracting rows before the garter stitch edge.

This makes a fun and fast project!


20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

  • 55 inches by 22 inches


  • 400 yds of worsted weight wool

I have been designing since 2008 and started being more professionally interested during the year 2010. I focus my designs on my own selfish interests: garments and accessories for boys (or unisex, of course), women and occasionally men.
