Triangle Squared – a Shawl with a patchwork look

This striking shawl is made in sections, giving it a patchwork look. Only one color is used at a time and there is no seaming involved. It’s a free pattern and makes a great stash-buster, as you can make every section in a different color if you wish. It’s nice and large so it will keep you plenty warm on a cold day.
