Diya is an asymmetrical triangular shawl knit from side to side. The garter stitch sections with the simple lace pattern create endless possibilities for color and design.
spoiler alert! there are NO PURL STITCHES in the pattern!
I’ve paired a variegated yarn with a coordinating solid but this shawl would look great with two solid colors or even knit completely in one color.
And, depending on the amount of yarn you have, you can easily add or remove sections to make the shawl larger or smaller.
Both charted and full written instructions are included.
