PATTERN NOTES This triangular, striped shawl is knit flat beginning with a garter tab cast-on. Stripes and eyelet rows make up most of the pattern with a bold stripe of Zig-Zag lace and a few rows of garter to finish it off. This pattern calls for the suspended bind-off method. You can find a tutorial for this method here. If in doubt, we recommend bumping up a needle size when binding off to ensure a stretchy edge.
This pattern is written to make the most of three balls of yarn. Measure your gauge after blocking to ensure accuracy and to prevent running out of yarn.
