Another Shetland Triangle

It is hard to find a cardigan or little jacket that is cute enough, dressy enough (but not too dressy), and just  the right cut to suit a particular sleeveless summer dress on those occasions where you need something for a bit of warmth if the temperature drops in the evening or the air conditioning is up too high! A stole, wrap, or shawl is the perfect solution.

Pattern: Shetland Triangle
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk
Color: Berry
Needles: Circular, 4.0 mm

This is the second time I have knit the Shetland Triangle. The first one was small enough to wear at the neck with a winter coat. With this shawl, I weighed the yarn periodically, and did pattern repeats until there was only enough left to add the edging. It is not huge - only measuring 53 inches across the top - but I am not a very large person so it will do.
