Inspired by the first pattern I ever published, the Dungarees Cowl, this shawl combines two different takes on an openwork knot stitch with lateral braids and bands of gathered stockinette. Worked from the top down in a traditional triangle shape, the shawl pattern includes two sizes, so you can make the most of your skein of yarn.

Finished dimensions: small is approximately 46”/117 cm across the top and 22”/56 cm deep; large approximately 54”/137 cm across the top and 26”/66 cm deep.

Note: it is not essential to get gauge, but differences in gauge will affect the size of your finished shawl and the amount of yarn used.
