A very easy and stunning shawl, inspired by the work of artist Frank Stella, this design is a study in geometry.
Triangular pieces are assembled together to create a spectacular wrap with a unique shape that is both beautiful and stunning to wear, with many tips, all in different shades.
I played with a gradient of grays, and my favorite color, gold, to give this shawl a vintage vibe.
The Frank Shawl is constructed as 3 triangular sections, joined together when working the last one of them.
Skill level: Beginner
97” (244 cm) from side to side and 39” (98 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point.
Yarn: 4 skeins of Tosh Merino Light, by Madelinetosh (100% Merino, 100g / 420yd 383m) or approx. 1428 yards 1306 m of fingering weight yarn. 1 skein in each color or approx. 420yd 383m in color 1, 300yd 275m in colors 2 and 3 and 340yd 311m in color 4.
The sample was made using colors:
1: Glazed Pecan (gold)
2: Antler (off-white)
3: Scratched Record (Charcoal) and
4: Great Grey Owl (medium gray).
Important: You will use every last yard of color 1. If you knit loosely and normally use more yarn than most patterns call for, I would recommend getting a second skein in this color.
Needles: US 5 (3.75mm) needles.
Other notions: Stitch markers, tapestry needle, blocking pins or wires, waste yarn to put sts on hold.
18 st and 38 rows to 4” (10cm) in garter st on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles after blocking.
Gauge is not crucial for this project, but changes might result in a different yardage requirement.
