A cosy shawl that knits up quickly in worsted-weight yarn, this design features simple but effective textured stitch patterns which will make you want to keep knitting! This triangular shawl is knitted with a top-down shawl construction technique.
Cast on at the nape of the neck, then increase outwards to form three points. Two garter-stitch segments alternate with Wildflower Knot Stitch, a raised pattern on a stocking-stitch background. Eyelet lace insertions divide the three sections, and the shawl is trimmed with tassels that use up leftover yarn.

The featured yarn is a plump, 3-ply, non-superwash Merino wool that yields a delightfully cuddly handle. This worsted-weight yarn is knit at a slightly looser gauge than normal, in order to produce fabric with more drape. If substituting a different yarn, for similar results choose a woollen-spun, worsted-weight wool.
