Triangular shawls offer a welcome outerwear substitute on chilly days when it’s cold but heavier garments aren’t quite necessary. These adaptable layers are easily incorporated into a wardrobe and can be worn time and time again. Patterned triangular shawls also offer a little more warmth and heft than their lacier cousins. We start grabbing for them right around this time of year as the transition from summer to autumn begins.
This season we’re revisiting Kindling, published in Wool People 4 and a favorite from our textured triangle archive. Originally designed for Loft held doubled (shown right), the pattern’s architectural lines and textures make a great canvas for DK-weight Arbor, too. Knit in our glacial “Rainier” colorway, the arrow motifs and unique four-stitch borders have a clean, sculptural quality with each line etched into the fabric.
Today we’ve released an update for the original Kindling pattern to include yardage and gauge requirements for the Arbor version as well. (If you already own a copy of the pattern, be sure to check for the update in your pattern library!)
As satisfying to knit as they are to wear, we look forward each year to casting on a new shawl as a companion project through the brisk seasons ahead.
