Philotes is a triangular shawl designed to get the most out of your yarn. Named for the Ancient Greek spirit of friendship it would make a fantastic gift or make it from that extra special skein and treat yourself!
It is knit sideways with optional beading, a zigzag lace border, tightly braided cable, and a soft and warm garter stitch body. The size of the shawl is easily adjustable depending on the amount of yarn you have.
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions as well as a photo tutorial for beading, so however you like to read your patterns, you're covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
You can easily substitute any other yarn weights - use a needle size slightly bigger than the one recommended on the ball band.
22 stitches and 26 rows in 10 cm (4") in garter
stitch after blocking.
Gauge is not essential but will affect the amount
of yarn used. It will also change the size of the
375 yards of Fingering weight

I’ve always loved creating things – the list of crafts I’ve tried and enjoy is pretty long and varied. Learning to knit has been a fantastic experience for me – it has all the advantages of my other crafts without the drawbacks. It’s relaxing, portable, practical & useful, decorative and offers boundless possibilities for creativity! There’s something magical in taking two sticks and some string and turning it into a shawl or a cuddly toy, or a hat or jumper. The possibilities are endless and that makes it really exciting.View all patterns by designer (8) »
