What Is A Triangle Shawl?

Rep rows 2 and 3 until your shawl reaches this size (or you run out of yarn):
- Length (laying flat and not stretched out) = 34 inches/ 86 cm
- Width tip to tip (laying flat and not stretched out) = 70 inches/ 177 cm
You can make it smaller or larger depending on your preferences, you can keep repeating rows 2 and 3 until you get your desired size.
Finish by doing an SS into the last ch, secure the yarn, leaving a small length of around 4 inches, and cut.
You can then weave in the loose ends.
*Please note if you make it smaller you may need less yarn and larger you will need more yarn.
Finishing and Blocking
You may wish to block your shawl, you can do that as follows:
Make sure all ends are woven in using a tapestry needle or method of choice.
Gently block by filling a sink or water basin with lukewarm water, and add a small amount of rinse less wool wash.
Place the items in the water and gently massage out any air bubbles.
Drain water, gently squeezing out any excess water from the item, then roll in a towel, and stomp on the towel roll to remove any more excess water.
Lay the item out on a towel to approx. finished wingspan measurements and allow to dry completely.
