Here is a knitting pattern for a lovely triangular shawl. With spring soon on its way, this light, yet warm shawl will be perfect for the season. The shawl is knitted using two different kinds of wool: a regular wool thread and a bouclé yarn thread.
The shawl is very easy to do. The result is a very trendy look with a terrific texture.
You will need the following for this project:
1 skein of rustic wool three ply
About 133 m of another type of yarn – a quite fine, like mohair-style bouclé wool
12mm (17US) knitting needles
- Cast on two stitches.
- The shawl is knit in Seed stitch: alternate 1 knit stitch (= k1) and 1 purled st (= p1) on same row, then reverse order for next row. You’ll need to bring yarn behind work for the k1, and bring yarn forward for the p1.
- Next, increase 1 stitch every 4th row on one edge of shawl, so as to shape the triangle.
- Repeat procedure until you have 26 stitches on needle.
- Next, decrease 1 stitch every 4th row on same edge as where you first increased, until you have 2 stitches left on needle.
- Break yarn and thread yarn end through the remaining stitches.
- Prepare lengths of yarn of 45 cm (18 in) each for fringes, and add them to shawl as desired to make 20 cm (8 in) long fringes.
The result is a 155 cm-long by 30 cm-wide knit shawl. Your shawl will be different according to the wool you use. But this shawl is so easy to do that you can customize the pattern yourself to obtain the desired effect.
