Striped Asym­me­try

Creative Knitting - - CONTENTS - De­sign by Andi Ja­vori

Gauge

24 sts and 40 rows = 4 inches/10cm in St st with smaller nee­dle (blocked). To save time, take time to check gauge.

Pat­tern Notes

Shawl is shaped by us­ing short rows; gaps be­tween short rows are closed us­ing de­creases, not by wrap­ping stitches.

This stun­ning striped tri­an­gu­lar shawl is shaped us­ing short rows. It’s the per­fect gar­ment for those crisp fall evenings.

Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date large num­ber of stitches. Do not join; work back and forth in rows.

When chang­ing col­ors, do not cut yarn; carry yarn that’s not in use loosely along edge of shawl.
