Amethyst Triangle Shawl

This rich, purple yarn creates a lovely shawlette with an easy stitch pattern. This color reminds me of a pair of amethyst earrings I own. It is knit top down, and can be made to any size.

I used one skein of KnitPicks Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye in the color Goddess. I used size 5 circular needles, to accomodate the large number of stitches towards the end.

CO 3, longtail

Row 1: k across

Row 2: k1, (yo, k1) twice

Row 3: k1, yo, k3, yo, k1

Row 4: (k1, yo, k2, yo), pm, rep (to) once more, k1

Row 5: k1, yo, k to marker, sm, k to last st, yo, k1

Row 6: k1, yo, k to marker, yo, sm, k1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1

Row 7: k1, yo, k1, (k2tog, yo) rep (to) last st before marker, k1, sm, (yo, k2tog) rep (to) to last 2 sts, k1, yo, k1

Row 8: rep row 6

Rep rows 5 and 6 three times

Rep rows 7 and 8

Continue in this manner, with three pattern repeats of rows 5 and 6, and then a repeat of rows 7 and 8. This makes the eyelet stripes between sections of garter stitch.

Before binding off, do three rep…
