New pattern: Folia Triangle

And that's a wrap! Rounding out my La Folia Collection is Folia Triangle, now available on Ravelry. It's a bottom-up triangular shawl with two size options - I knit the large size, and it's enormous and very snuggly. :)

Features:

  • a v-shaped leaf-lace panel on a background of garter stitch
  • a shallow triangular shape, knit from the bottom point upwards
  • a tidy i-cord bind off
  • stitch markers keep track of the lace section's boundaries, so that only a few rows require you to pay special attention
  • for two skeins of fingering-weight yarn, or one high-yardage skein
  • perfect for speckled or lightly variegated yarn as well as solids and semi-solids - the lace pattern is simple enough to take it
  • two sizes (shown in L), easily shrunk or enlarged by changing the number of repeats
  • pattern includes full written instructions and hybrid charted + written instructions

I used two gorgeous skeins of Revelry Sock from Circus Tonic Handmade, in a speckled colourway called 'Zebra Finch'. All of Circus Tonic's colours are named after Australian birds, which I think is really cool (as a fellow bird lover).

You can see all the details and download the Folia Triangle pattern via Ravelry and Loveknitting. An ebook with all three patterns is also available on Ravelry as the La Folia Collection.

P.S. Here's a tiny video I posted on Instagram a couple of months ago, when I was knitting the bind off on this shawl:

My new favourite bind-off for shawls is a 2-stitch icord BO! *k1, k2tog through back loops, slip 2 sts to left needle, repeat from * until done. 💕🙌🏼
