On rainy days, reach for a comforting blanket shawl worked in rustic, homey garter stitch. Nadia’s eye for modern geometry and minimal adornment gives this design a lift without sacrificing the unfussy practicality of the humble garter triangle. This simple shawl begins with a classic garter tab and grows asymmetrically, with one wing longer than the other. The lace band on the side is worked together with the body of the shawl and then two lace repeats (or more, if you wish) finish the third edge. This unexpected placement of the embellishment adds to Scalene’s fresh appeal, and the longer wing of the triangle easily wraps over your shoulder and stays in place without a pin.
