The Vanilla Waffle Wrap is a fingering weight triangular shawlette designed for the modern wardrobe.
It begins from the lower tip and grows asymmetrically with one straight edge and one slanted edge. M1 increases worked both in WS and RS rows shape the slanted edge. It uses simple knit and purl stitches along with slip stitches to create a pleasant texture.
The knit is mostly mindless. Stripes at the border and the picot bind off give an interesting finish to the project.
