|Job type||Test knit|
A simple triangluar shawl that's perfect for showing off a luxurious DK weight yarn. Two colours are worked in moss stitch to create textured stripes inspired by sunlight slanting between trees. Choose colours with high contrast for a dramatic look, or lower contrast for a subtle, shifting effect.

Hypotenuse: 142 cm / 56"
|Gauge||18 sts x 28 rows in 1x1 moss stitch = 10 cm / 4" after blocking|

Knit, purl, make-one and yarn-over increases, alternating colours.
|Construction type||Worked flat from one corner to a long edge.|
|Required or recommended yarn||Pattern is written for The Fibre Co Luma, but any DK weight yarn with which you can get gauge is fine|
