Product details

The stripes in this easy asymmetrical triangle shawl echo the sharp, stacked angles of the Flatirons, a neat arrangement of five linked peaks just outside Boulder, Colorado.

Each stripe is picked up along the previous one, log cabin-style, starting with short rows and then shifting to the long, mindless rows that make garter stitch so comforting to knit. In other words, it’s a garter stitch shawl that doesn’t make you knit the exact same row hundreds of times over — the widest stripe is less than 30 rows deep! The shawl ends with a pinstriped edge and striped i-cord, for a polished finish.

The shawl was born to show off bold stripes, and really shines in hand-dyed yarn. The tonal brown sample uses two sock yarns from Boulder's own [Gypsy Wools][2] in the same colorway, one all wool and one wool-silk blend, and highlights the way different materials are transformed in the dye pot.

The easy-to-follow pattern includes hand-drawn illustrations and instructions for up to 18
