Krokos Triangle

Description

The Krokos triangle is worked in motifs replicating the first emerging crocus buds of spring. Knit up in fingering(DK) weight yarn, this piece can be a multi-seasonal wardrobe staple for a range of climates. With lace work on right side rows only and wrong side rows all in purl, this design makes a great first shawl project for newer knitters and a quick diversion knit for veterans, to keep or give as a special gift.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
