Mix Tape focuses on two triangular shawl shapes with the same pattern stitch!
Side A features a triangle that’s worked sideways along the bias. Increasing occurs on one end of the shawl, decreasing every 4th row on the other end, giving it that classic boomerang shawl shape.
Side B is a top-down triangular shawl, taking its traditional shape from increasing 4 stitches on every right-side row, one on each end and then one on each side of a center spine.
Worked flat, Mix Tape contains written directions and charts. With the nature of these shawls and this pattern, you can knit these designs to any desired length. It’s entirely up to you and the yardage you have on hand! The sizes listed are to give knitters help planning their yardage, like benchmarks.
