Project Love: Beautiful Triangle Shawls

August 29, 2018
By Janina Kallio


Triangle shawls come in many shapes and sizes and can be knitted from different directions. For a knitter, they are endlessly fascinating projects as many different constructions are possible.

Diamond Ice is an example of a classic triangle that is knitted down from the centre top, increasing at both sides and along the central spine. In Quatrefoil, you work the triangle upside down, starting from the bottom tip, with just one stitch. Diagonally knitted shawls, like Moon Dust and Lake Song, are worked from one tip to the opposite side of the triangle creating a slightly asymmetric shape.

Here are six beautiful examples of different triangle shawls, made by knitters around the world.
