Riley Triangle Shawl

Riley Triangle Shawl
Test knitted by Joan W.

Hi knitters!

I hope all is well. It has been months since my last published pattern but I’m very excited to finally introduce the Riley Shawl! I’ve been working on this shawl since November of last year and months later, here we are…a finished product!

The Riley Shawl is the first pattern on Purl Avenue that is available for purchase. So head over to Ravelry and Etsy for purchase information.

Knitted using three skeins of Madelinetosh Vintage, the Riley Shawl is a triangle shawl that is worked from the bottom up. I’m so glad I picked Tosh Vintage because I absolutely love the bouncy, squishy characteristic of this yarn. The colorway used is Hudson River Blue (color might be disco’ed) but I can certainly see a variation of gray looking great as well. After blocking, the shawl measures roughly 63″ by 30″ but you might be able to squeeze in a few more inches depending on how aggressively you block it.

Wet blocking
Wet block method was used.
