What's better than matching a shawl that is worked in bands with a yarn that is dyed in bands? This scalene triangle is worked from side to side, beginning at one point. It works toward the other straight side, adding stitches along the way to increase the size. Seven different textures are worked, following written instructions, and separated by garter stitch bands. At the same time, the yarn color is gradually changing from one color to another. Finished measurements are approximately 51" across the longest side and 31" along the shortest. It can be hand washed and dried flat.
Pendenza is a knock-your-socks-off gleaming cotton yarn. It is made from 100% Egyptian cotton that is mercerized for a shiny, sleek look. It is dyed in bright colors with a long color repeat, so it works up in to color bands that blend from one to another. It is a DK weight yarn and is knit here at 5.5 stitches per inch in stockinette.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 24" circular needles in US size 5 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
