Trickle is a richly textured, large and cozy shawl. The elongated asymmetrical triangle shape allows for effortless wearing ease and maximal wrapping pleasure. The focal point of Trickle
is the striking stitch pattern, which reminds me of the beautiful and intricate decorations found in art-deco architecture. The diamond shapes seem to trickle down the shawl, getting denser as you approach the right edge of your shawl, which is finished a simple but elegant border.
Trickle is worked from tip to edge, then finished with a border that is worked perpendicular to the body of the shawl. Increases are worked on one side of the shawl. To achieve the asymmetrical, elongated triangle shape these increases are worked at different rates in every section.
