Lacy shawls are great for spring, but when the temperature drops, you need something a bit heavier. Worked in DK weight yarn, this asymmetrical triangle shawl mixes simple stockinette and garter with a clever slipped stitch pattern. The result is a warm, colorful accessory that’s fun to knit and quick to finish. Try pairing a solid main color with a solid, variegated or gradient contrast color.
Fair warning: there are a lot of ends to weave in! I found it easier to stop occasionally and weave them in, rather than waiting until the shawl was complete.
