Making Advances back view | The Knitting Vortex

Alternating textures in two colors decorate a bold triangle shawl, then advance unexpectedly to one side, for an asymmetric finish. Color choice is the focus, while the shape is long and easy to wear, and the knitting simple and relaxing.

Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing.
Size: 75” length and 22” depth.
Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles (100% merino wool; 400 yards/366m/100g); 1 skein each colors A and B, shown in Urchin and Vengeance, respectively. The sample used approximately 355 yards A and 395 yards B. Using a drapey single or loosely plied yarn will help minimize rolling at the long bottom left edge.
Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 32” circular needle, or size to match gauge; Yarn needle.
Gauge: 19 st and 38 rows/4” in garter stitch, 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.
