  • This generous triangle in three sizes (mini/petite/tall) has a gorgeous secret—flip it over and a different, but equally pretty, hem pattern is revealed on the reverse side; it may be worn either way. Despite its lightness and beauty, this year-round wardrobe workhorse will wrap you in warmth on the coldest of days or provide a whispery layer on a midsummer evening. Knit in an exotic fiber blend for decadent drape and softness, this is a fun to work, quick-knitting project that travels well and makes a lovely gift—one you’ll be happy to knit twice!
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
