Faded Linen Shawl Knit Pattern


PDF Download

This triangle shawl knit on a bias, is an exploration of knitting as an act of meditation. While the linen stitch is the same throughout the body, slowly watch the colours transition from one to the next, creating a beautiful garment that appears to be woven. Make this shawl as subtle or as bold as your heart desires. It’s a fabulous stash buster! The shawl is completed with a knit-on lace border. 

The pattern provides both written instructions and charts where applicable.

  • Gauge is not essential as long as you like the drape of the fabric at the needle size you use. Changing the gauge will change the yardage required
  • I prefer to use a DPN for the lace border but it is possible to knit the border using only the circular needles.
