The Amai Shawl, Japanese for ‘sweet’, has been designed to let gradient yarns shine. Treat yourself to TV-knitting and get a beautiful shawl as a reward. The pattern can be worked in any yarn weight and at any gauge you like. Instructions for worsted and fingering yarn are included. For other yarn weights, see notes at the end of the pattern.
The sample shawl does have an unfortunate error in it. The dark side triangle goes past the increase line and continues for a couple additional inches.
The pattern is not written this way and you should consider the look on the other side. We apologize for this error!
