Triangles within Triangles Shawl

HeartStrings knitting pattern #A63

A simple triangular shawl that starts with just a few stitches at the center neckline, and increases in pattern to create the triangle shape. Since the knitting is stockinette stitch-based, this design uses a rate of increase that is slightly more than the typical every-other-row rate so that the resulting shape retains a pleasing width-to-length ratio.

The main pattern alternates a solid triangle with a lacy triangle. A coordinating edging is used to bind off, as well as create a pretty triangle-shaped finish to the outer edge of the shawl.

Triangles within Triangles Shawl detail

For a 36" deep by 72" wide shawl in fingering weight yarn, plan for approximately 1200 yards at 4½ stitches/inch over pattern on size US 7 / 4.5 mm needles suggested. Shown above in Haneke fingering-weight alpaca, color melange lilac. Easily adjusts to other sizes by knitting to length desired, and other weights of yarn with corresponding adjustment in needle size and yardage. Includes both charted and written pattern stitch instructions.

I just finished making the triangle shawl and wanted to thank you for your creative pattern. It worked very well for me and I wanted you to know that the pattern directions were perfect! Your notes and simple written instructions were great.
