Wrapping my mother in cozy warmth

Shetland Triangle FO back

Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark from Wrap Style.

Yarn: Sandnesgarn Lanett in colour # 4028, 158 grams (a little over three balls).

Needles: 80 cm 4 mm Addi Turbos.


Unblocked: 110 * 54 cm

Blocked: 173 * 73 cm

I worked 16 pattern repeats to get a bigger shawl (my mother wanted the shawl to reach her elbows. Of course, I had to test that:

I’m about right on size, I think.

I absolutely love this pattern! It is much easier to memorize than the Flower Basket Shawl, and I like the flowing nature of the pattern better. I want to make this pattern again for myself, but possibly in a slightly thicker yarn, as this shawl took quite some time to finish (although the first trimester knitting break didn’t help!)

    Oooh, that’s a lovely shawl! Just stunning, really – your mother is one lucky lady.

    (It’s also really inspiring to see finished shawls, as I sit here wondering if I’ll ever finish the recently-started monster lace triangle for my MIL, or if it will go the way of the afghan that’s been on the needles for over a year…)

    Yes, your mother is really a lucky lady. It’s beautiful.

    I think I commented on the wrong post but that is just an absolutely beautiful shawl. Don’t blame your mother for being proud.

    Absolutely beautiful, and the color looks lovely with the pattern. This shawl is on my to-knit list, for sure!
