Project Love: Cosy Triangles Alchemy & Bough

March 30, 2018
By Janina Kallio


Shawls come in various shapes, sizes and constructions, but for many knitters the one on top of the list is the diagonally knitted triangle. These shawls are worked from one tip to the opposite side of the triangle, creating a slightly asymmetric shape.

In addition to being versatile and easy to wear, another unbeatable upside of this construction is that the rows don’t get as long as in the classic top-down triangles, and there’s less stitches to bind off in the end.

Especially when knitted with heavier weight yarns, like DK weight Alchemy or worsted weight Bough, you can just sit back and enjoy watching the shawl grow quickly on your needles. To inspire your next cast on, here’s a selection 8 beautiful diagonally knitted triangle shawls made by lovely knitters around the world.
