My motto for this knit triangle shawl is “The weather will get colder, eventually”. I created this shawl with the beautiful Gazzal Viking yarn for those cold days when you just have to put something over your shoulders, even if you are inside.
Simple stitches that create an elegant and timeless design. The yarn itself is a pleasure to work with as it is very soft and thick enough to make the rows fly by. I hope you will have as much fun as I did when making this shawl.
The pattern can be very easily memorized and you can watch your favorite show while keeping your hands busy. Any advanced beginner that can make an increase in knitting will be able to complete this project. Let’s see what are you going to need.
