A little while ago, I mentioned thinking about working my way through a book on shawl shapes where the projects are all (or mostly) mini-shawls. Well, I finally got started. This is pattern #1 in the book – Tip Up Triangle Shawl. The name pretty much says it all. You start at the tip and do the increases along the sides as you work your way up.
It turned out OK, but the lace pattern is kind of indistinct. Possibly I need to block it a little harder, or possibly need smaller needles. I plan to rework it anyway – I don’t love the garter with this. Stockinette with the lace might look a bit better. And seriously, this took maybe an hour to knit, so if I’m ever going to just fool around with something, this is the time.
As an added bonus, I think this project is going to help me use up a LOT of scraps!
