A Sideways Asymmetrical Shawl // Design by Tabetha Hedrick
Contrasting stripes, diagonal lines, and bold colour on a canvas of garter stitch is the epitome of relaxed knitting. The unique shape, a slightly asymmetrical triangle, worked sideways, builds, shifts, and decreases ever so beautifully, promising a shawl that is as tantalizing to knit as it is to wrap up in.
