Triangle Angle Shawl

RELEASE DATE:  May 2001 -- This pattern was designed especially for Good Fibrations, as a shawl to be made with their Colorado-raised mohair yarns (this small herd of goats live about 15 miles from my home).

DESCRIPTION:  This a reversible triangular shawl knitted sideways in back-and-forth garter stitch lace from one front point, widening to a point in the middle of the back and then narrowing to the other front point. It has a simple, diagonally slanting lace stitch pattern as the body of the shawl with a faggot stitch strip and a pointed lace outer edging with the same diagonally slanting lace pattern as the body of the shawl.

SIZE:  The shawl is about 76 inches wide (right front tip to left front tip) and 31 inches deep (center of long edge to center back point) when the shawl is blocked. Unblocked itís about 56 inches wide and 26 inches deep. It can easily be made larger or smaller ó see the design variations section at the end of the pattern.

SKILL REQUIRED:  Intermediate-advanced.


  • YARN:  About 500 yards of Good Fibrations Mohair (five 100-yard skeins) or other double knitting weight yarn (thicker than sport-weight, but thinner than worsted weight) such as wool, alpaca, silk, etc. Yarn should be of a single color or subtle variegations or shadings.  
  • YARN & PATTERN KITS ARE AVAILABLE:  If you would like to buy a kit or find out more about Good Fibrations' mohair and mohair blend yarns, contact Marcia Kummerle at goodfibrations@tds.net .  She can provide kits in natural colors or your choice of hand-dyed solid or rainbow-dyed colors.
  • NEEDLES:  Size 9 (or size to achieve gauge) straight or circular needles.
    • Stitch markers (plastic or metal rings are best) to mark different pattern sections
    • Darning needle for weaving in ends
    • Long, ball-head, rustproof straight pins for blocking
    • Electric fan for drying shawl (optional)

GAUGE:  Gauge is very difficult to accurately measure on loosely knit lace, so please make a gauge swatch in basic garter stitch. On the unstretched garter stitch swatch, my gauge is 14 stitches per 4 inches.

The model wearing the shawl is Suzy Belt, formerly of Echo Mountain Alpacas in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, now of Suzy's Yarn Shop in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.  Notice that she is wearing a hat which she felted of her herd's alpaca fiber, and the hat band is braided from hand spun yarn of several natural alpaca colors.  If you are interested in a custom felt hat, contact Suzy at http://www.sunmerc.com/yarn/
