Mohair and Ribbon Triangle Shawl

I've been playing a lot with simple pattern ideas for ribbon yarns.   I especially like ribbons combined with yarns of other textures - like mohair - so I knitted up a very quick triangle shawl to show both yarns off.

This is all you need:

Needles:  11 or larger [The bigger the needles, the bigger the shawl]


The pattern is simple:

Cast on 3 with both yarns held together. 
Row 1:  Knit across with both yarns, increasing 1 stitch at the beginning and the end of the row. 
Row 2: Knit.
Row 3-4: With ribbon yarn only, repeat rows 1-2. 
Rows 5-6:  With mohair/ rayon yarn only, repeat rows 1-2. 

Continue on until you are almost out of yarn.  Bind off very loosely.  Cut and weave in ends.


  1. Sounds simple but looks fantastic!

  2. Have you ever thought of posting "how-to" video's? For people like me who need to learn to do this stuff but don't have anyone to teach them? You're great on camera. I think you'd do a great job.

  3. Janiel - Great idea! I need to find a camera and someone to run the camera ... and clean up a place in the studio to make vid and then we're good to go.
