Here is a beautiful design by Samantha Guerin Design for Biscotte Yarns. This dramatic Tricolore shawl is worked sideways from tip to tip in three sections. Starting with just a few stitches, you’ll work a series of two color stripes, eyelet rows and lace as you increase up to the full width of the shawl.
The center features repeats of lace, stripes and slipped stitches resting atop garter stitch. After working across the center section, you’ll begin the gentle descent down to the bind off by working a decreasing version of that first, striped section.

The design is engaging, I love the way this shawl transitions, it is a thoughtful pattern. I plan to adjust it and use a dk yarn.
I have not yet had the opportunity to knit this pattern, but I have read through it. I like that the increasing and decreasing sections include row by row stitch counts. I appreciate that there are both charts and written instructions. I prefer charts, my husband (also a knitter) prefers written instructions. I only wish the chart key to the symbols was on the same page as the charts, but that is a minor issue. I like that a schematic is included. The pattern appears to be well written. I look forward to knitting the shawl once my current project(s) are finished. Thank you for the pattern.
I've just started, but so far so good.
I saw this shawl and loved the color choice. I thought of purchasing the yarn from my lys, but didn’t want to chance them not having it in stock. So i ordered the yarn as well! So excited to start knitting!
