Double Garter Triangular Shawl

BY SHUI KUEN KOZINSKI

The beautiful color patterns of this reversible shawl are achieved by working with alternating colors, using the “double point sliding technique,” with alternating strands  knit every row.  Double garter stitches give the shawl a very fluffy feeling, a perfect complement to its subtle color changes.  The shawl is knitted from tip up, with increases on one side and straight knitting on another side, until desired size. The double point sliding technique is so called because you slide sts to the opposite end of your dpn or circular needle.
