Modifications:

Edited triangle 1: followed pattern for section 1, then changed section 2…

Edited Triangle 2: Followed pattern for section 3, then changed section 4…
Section 4:
With C1, garter rows 1-2 once.
With C13, garter rows 1-2 once.

Cut working yarn. (RS) Place 171 sts on holder. Join working yarn at center, BO 171 sts (suspended BO).

Then, garter graft two triangles together. (See my post here on grafting in garter!)

Garter Graft (center row in middle white stripe)

Another modification I made was to add two rows of single crochet edging in the white yarn around the entire shawl, after blocking it first. It really needs a second block to even out the crocheted edge, but I wanted to wear it right away so I haven’t done that yet.


 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m really happy with how it turned out! It’s a different shape than I normally wear, so I’m still a bit unsure how to style it when I wear it. But it is a lovely squishy piece that will keep me warm – and because it is made up of all different colors it will match lots of outfits!

 

Until next time, Happy Knitting!!
