Though the shape of this asymmetric shawl looks

daunting it may be one of the easiest things you ever


knit.
The design is basically 8 right angled triangles, each
offset from the previous one to form a shape
reminiscent of a Curve of Pursuit. There is no joining;
everything is achieved with short rows. Dont be
alarmed though, there is no wrapping involved and it is
all knit in garter stitch.

Stitch markers make everything so much easier. You


are going to need 7 which will remain where you place
them, until the very end, and one different one which is
going to travel with the rows as they get shorter. If you
follow the instructions very carefully for the first couple
of rows after that it will become automatic.

INSTRUCTIONS
When casting on - both at the beginning and in the middle of the
shawl use any method you prefer which gives a firm but not tight
edge.

ABBREVIATIONS

When working short rows do not bother to wrap the stitches it


actually looks better without.

VARIATIONS ON A THEME
*You can of course go on knitting, adding as many triangles as you
like.

Copyright remains with the


designer.

*You might like to add a button as a highlight and to hold a small


shawl in place.

All rights reserved.


Intended for personal use only.

*You will have noticed there are two figures highlighted in red in the
pattern. If you wish to make this shawl in a different size (for
instance if you use Worsted, or Double Knitting yarn) these are the
only things in the pattern that need to be changed. Really.
For Worsted weight yarn I recommend Casting on 45 stitches and
staggering by 10 stitches.
For Double Knitting try casting on 60 stitches and staggering by 13
stitches.
You can see examples of both in my projects.
*You could try knitting each triangle in a different colour or yarn. It
would even look good knitted completely randomly in scraps of yarn
(maybe all those left over bits of luxury sock yarn?
