Pattern Description:

This top-down triangular shawl with its simple zig-zag lines (in texture or lace, your choice) is a quick an easy knit. The beads in the border give it weight, and you can choose a contrasting color for an extra zing.

The textured chart works best in a solid or semi-solid color. The lace chart works well with a yarn with a little more color variation.

Samples were knit in both fingering and lace weight yarns, and the size of the shawl can be increased by repeating the body chart. A small fingering weight version uses less than 100g (430yd/393m), and a large lace version uses less than 100g (785yd/718m).

I'm a lifelong crafter, but settled on knitting in university when I wanted sweaters but couldn't afford to buy them. My first knitting love was lace. I'm sure I'll keep returning to lace, but there are so many other fun techniques to explore as well!
