Timeless and elegant, easy knit triangle shawl.
I know that the weather is getting warmer in our part of the world but I was trying all winter to come up with a triangle shawl that I would like and… nothing! I had this beautiful yarn in my stash for a long time now and I knew I had to make something out of it. It was a shame to just lay there on my shelves doing nothing.
Pin me for later… 😉
I was originally going to make something crochet, but nothing worked out as it was supposed to. Absolutely nothing! So, I hope my fellow crocheters will forgive me, I tried.
The idea for this particular knit triangle shawl came from watching too much Outlander the past month. I have always been a fan of the show in general, but besides the story, I always loved the clothes of this era.
And don’t get me started on the knitwear! They were all so beautiful! From hand warmers to shawls, I loved absolutely everything!
So, the idea of a simple knit triangle scarf started forming in my head. Nothing fancy, no tassels, no fringe, just simple stitches.
The yarn helped a lot with the final formation of the shawl. I used the Viking Gazzal, in the mink color, which is a super bulky acrylic-wool yarn. As many of you guessed this one was also kindly provided to me, a lot of time ago from Hobium Yarns.
Viking Gazzal is a super soft bulky yarn which made this project fly off my needles. The whole thing was made in just 5 days, and if you should know one thing about me is that I am among the slowest knitters of the world! So, this must be some kind of record.
The shawl itself is quite big, but not huge. It measures 142 cm (56”) wide and 71 cm (28”) long after blocking. I didn’t block it aggressively though. Just gave it a light steaming to relax the stitches and show off better the design.
I used 4 balls of the yarn or about 400 m (430 yds), but the pattern is so easy and flexible that you can stop at about any point you like and add the final border rows. So, you can just make it larger or smaller depending on your needs or the yarn you have available.
But enough with me rambling about the process. You can find the free pattern for this knit triangle shawl over on the Hobium Yarns blog, or purchase the print-friendly pdf on my Etsy, Ravelry, and Lovecrafts shops.
Pin now, make later… 😉
