Pattern Description:

This triangular shawlette has a raised rib running down its center and the tip of the shawl resembles an arrow. It's knit from the bottom point to the top.

The shawlette can be made with any DK or Worsted weight yarn. I recommend using needles which are a size larger than suggested for the yarn you're using in order to get a looser and more flexible fit.


20 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished shawlette measures approximately 33" across the top, 15" in height and 21"at its sides.


  • 225 yards of DK weight yarn
  • Size 8 knitting needles

Suggested yarn:

225 yards of DK weight

I've been knitting and crocheting for over 25 years now and learned these crafts as a small child from my grandmother. My hands haven't been idle since!
