Mesh Triangle Shawl

By: Joanna Curley from
Mesh Triangle Shawl
Mesh Triangle Shawl

"This beautiful and easy to make triangle shawl is perfect for the transitioning seasons. Shawl is knit from the top down to tip, and once you get going it is an easy 2-row repeat. Use your stitch markers thoughtfully! I use a green marker to mark the beginning of my “knit only” row, and a red stitch marker to mark my “increase” rows. It’s tremendously helpful when knitting in front of the tv. Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball with give you those gorgeous gradual color change, and I highly recommend it. If you substitute another yarn, just pay attention to the size needle you’ll need. Shawl in a ball is marked on the label as a worsted weight, but really, it is closer to light weight (3). SO, substitute with a light yarn and use a size 7 needle, but if you go up to a worsted weight yarn (4), be sure to go up to an 8 or even size 9 needle (especially for those heavier weight worsted, like Caron one pound), just to make sure your shawl has the drape it needs. Bind off extra loose, or, even better, use a russian lace bind off, which is basically instead of passing one stitch over another after knitting them, you will knit the 2 stitches together through the back loop, just as if you were working an SSK."

Can't wait to make this. Just so I can keep things straight, should there be an odd or an even number of stitches on each side of the needle (not including the middle knit stitch that has the markers on each side). In other words, how many stitches does each Row 8 increase add to the needle? Thank you so much!

Each increase row adds 4 stitches to the pattern.

This triangle shawl is gorgeous. I love that you can where triangle shawls in the style of a scarf too and they look just as cute. The shawl in a ball yarns color changes work perfectly with the stitch pattern and the shape of the shawl. This is definitely a pattern I will be working up soon.

Does SSK mean slip 2 stitches and then knit the 2 stitches?

Hi lolapog 3186494, this video provides a nice overview of SSK: Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

ssk, is slip, slip, knit. Slip 2 stitches 1 at a time to the right needle then slip the 2 stitches together back to left hand needle and knit from this position, this stacks the stitches so they lean a certain way in the pattern.

I have worked with "Shawl in a Ball" before and it is nice yarn for a economical price. You can make a lovely shawl for less than $10.00. You can't bet that. This pattern is perfect for it and not hard to knit. Trust me you will get plenty of compliments and others asking for you to make one for them. Thank you for the pattern.

This is so pretty! I love the color scheme and the yarn pattern. I think I'll have to make one just like this for myself!
