Cold winter, warm shawl
Winter is still in full swing around here
Temperatures dropped again under 10°C and with the wind it feels plain cold, cold, cold. Just the right weather for sitting inside, central heating turned all the way up and knitting and spinning up a storm. Which also means I got to finish my latest shawl project in only 10 days. It’s a variation on the Shetland Triangle pattern, which can be found in the book „Wrap Style“ by Pam Allen and Ann Budd.
Variation on Shetland Triangle
For a shallower appearance and longer tails I started out with a stockinette body section and 6 increases per 2 rows. After I got 91 stitches in each half of the triangle I started the Shetland lace pattern and continued with the traditional 4 increases per 2 rows. The plan worked out really well. Even if you can’t see it in the pics the shawl has got a nice crescent shape with long tails.
Alpaca yarn makes for a nice, drapey fabric.
