Knit your own Shallow Tri Shawl using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
The wide-angle construction of this lace-bordered wrap results in a flattering cross between triangle shawl and long stole. The plain garter stitch center area allows the colors of hand-dyed yarns to be highlighted in a lacy garment in a simple, yet effective way.
The beaded lace border is worked at the same time as the body of the shawl, and frames the shallow triangular garter stitch area on all three sides. Beads are placed on stitch loops with a small crochet hook and knitted in as needed.
Laceweight yarn and size 6/0 (4 mm diameter) seed beads. Pictured model was knitted using Silk Lace 20/2 100% Silk by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in color Passion Fruit; Miyuki beads color 592 Ivory Ceylon.
