Supersized Shetland Shawl

My mother-in-law asked if I'd make her a big black shawl to keep her warm on those cold Colorado evenings. I'd seen quite a few of these done in a heavier weight yarn that had turned out beautifully and knew it would be just the ticket! Shetland Triangle Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn A. Clark (from Interweave Knits Wrap Style) Shetland Triangle Modifications:
  • A heavier weight yarn: Catalina 70% Baby Alpaca/30% Silk (yes, this feels soooo good)
  • Larger needles: Size 9
  • More repeats: 13 repeats of the body pattern
  • Shetland Triangle
