Courser Shawl cover | The Knitting Vortex

Five textured stitch patterns combine in a completely reversible classic triangle shawl worked in soft and cozy worsted weight yarn, ideal for cooler temperatures. Both variegated and semi-solid yarns are perfect choices for showing off the textures; completely reversible, the right side displays a rib-based fabric broken by bands of seed texture, while the reverse side shows a more nubby and rustic overall fabric, with a high-relief, welted bottom edging.

Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab CO, knit/purl, slipped stitches, increasing; stitch patterns are both written and charted.
Size: 60” wingspan and 28” depth, customizable to any size.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Rios (100% superwash merino wool; 210 yards/ 192m/100g), shown in Tranquilo; 3 skeins, or approximately 630 yards of worsted weight wool yarn.
Other Materials: US 8 (5mm) 32” circular needle or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (4); Yarn needle.
Gauge: 20 st and 28 rows/4” in Broken Rib, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
