Heavily textured, but easy to customize for size, this asymmetrical shawl pattern works up in any yarn and creates a warm and cuddly shawl that drapes beautifully.
About this asymmetrical shawl pattern
This was the first inkling I ever had of this stitch pattern. It started out as something completely different, a band of textured stitches along an asymmetrical triangle shawl worked on the bias.
It ended up a fully-textured shawl that looks and feels amazing.
In this shawl, the elegant honeycomb pattern is used to create a crescent shape in an asymmetrical construction. Since the fabric is thick and cozy, it’s perfect for winter and for wearing as a shawl or as a triangle scarf.
In a precious yarn, it’s perfect for a special occasion, as it can be worn around the shoulders, pinned with a brooch, with the ends left to coil up into pretty swirls.
The shawl is worked on the bias from one point and grows until you are satisfied with the size, longer and wider for a comfier shawl, shorter and lighter for a shawlette.
You can make the shawl as long as you want to by adding more rows, which are so easy to memorize.
The pattern includes full written instructions, charts, US and UK terms, as well as an easy read version for both terms.
The sample shawl measures 140 cm or 55” across the top edge and 55 cm or 21.5” in depth.
It can be made larger by adding more pattern repeats of 2 rows.
Testers have made their shawls between 100 and 170 cm or between 40″ and 67″ along the top edge (a), with a depth between 40 and 65 cm or between 16″ and 25.5″ in width (b).
