Nina Machlin Dayton Geometry Shawl PDF
Large or small, the Geometry Shawl by Nina Machlin Dayton is a simple, elegant shawl that evokes the lines we all drew with our protractors in math class. A great chance to combine colors, this pattern also uses only 10 (Small) and 25 (Large) yards of worsted/aran weight yarn (in addition to the fingering weight used for the body of the shawl) for the Contrasting Color edging, so it’s a great use for those leftover scraps. Have no fear of the crochet hook - its use is completely explained in the pattern. Worked from the top down, with two sizes and endless possibilities for color combinations, you can knit this shawl over and over again, and still want just one more…
