Tolliver Falls Shawl -- PDF knitting pattern
This asymmetrical triangular shawl is worked back and forth from one tip to the opposite side. As it grows, a mirrored lacy zigzag forms along the top and bottom edges. A stockinette body grows along the top. To complete the look, the pattern ends with lace triangles that can be shaped into points during blocking to match the other two edges. All patterning occurs on the right side of the work.
Work more or fewer repeats of the main pattern to increase or decrease the length of the shawl.
Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but using a different yarn weight or needle size will affect the size of the finished shawl.
