Triptyque Shawl Pattern
This shawl is an original design by Louise Robert worked in three pieces: its base is composed of two triangles crowned with a diamond. Both triangles are worked separately and are assembled together when knitting the third part.
While working on this shawl, I remembered a specific project from my studies in art history and this is how the name of Triptyque (french word for triptych) came to mind.
On Wikipedia, a triptych is defined by something composed or presented in three parts or sections. In the field of the fine arts, the triptych is defined as "a work of art (usually a panel painting) that is divided into three sections, or three carved panels that are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open". Enjoy knitting your Triptyque shawl! - Louise Robert

The shawl looks beautiful and intriguing, but I have not had a chance to make it yet.
While I haven't started this yet, the instructions seem to be laid out very well. I like a pattern that holds a bit of a challenge to it without the instructions being confusing. This pattern hits both points for me. I've seen this pattern and sample in my local yarn store which is why I decided to buy the pattern.
Excellent instructions: clearly written, easy to follow. I am using Malabrigo combinations, and it's coming out very well.
2 skeins of the yarn originally sent were incorrect....they had been mismarked. After a number of emails with customer service the mistake was identified. The correct yarn was sent in a very timely manner. Stuff happens.
So far I am enjoying this pattern. The knitting is fun. I am a little concerned that the shawl is going to be smaller than anticipated but time will tell!
The yarn from Bisco the is so lovely to work, I know I will enjoy using it. The patterns are also fab!
