This triangular shawl was inspired by the comforting feeling of gazing up at the clouds.

The combination of mohair and lots of texture creates a fabric that you cannot wait to squeeze between your fingers and wrap around your shoulders as you embrace the changing weather outside. The mohair also adds a foggy haze without subtracting from the textures in the body and trim and gives the shawl a lofty appearance.

The shawl is worked from the bottom point up. The shaping is made by increasing with yarn overs at the beginning of each row. To complete the centre triangle, a loose I-cord bind-off is used. The yarn overs are then used to easily pick up stitches for the border which is worked in 2x2 ribbing. Due to the nature of the two different stitch patterns used, the shawl is almost entirely reversible. Once the shawl is blocked, tiny tassels are added because why not! These can also easily be left off.
