Notes from the Designer:
This design takes basic stitches and combines them in unique ways. This triangular shawl is a relaxing knit but has enough variety to keep you engaged and excited to reach the next section. You will use three colors to explore basic lace and then see a pattern unfold, as you add mosaic knitting with highlights using twisted stitches.
- Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial showing you how to read a chart for a triangle shawl and how to work a few rows of the Tranquility section.
- Please carefully read through the pattern before starting your project.
- This triangular shawl begins with a garter tab cast on and grows by 4 sts on each RS row.
- Stitch patterns are charted only.
- The Eyelet pattern (see chart on page 10) is repeated throughout as a transition between the Lace, Mosaic, and Twisted stitch patterns that are featured in the design.
- The final edge is created using a contrasting color I-cord bind off.
- Throughout the entire pattern on all WS rows, the stitches immediately before and after the center spine stitch should be worked as a purl stitch. The notation in all of the charts is correct for those single sts.
- If using high-contrast colors as shown, steam blocking is strongly encouraged to avoid color transfer.
Four Direction Lace Part 2 Row 11 has an extra yo at the beginning. Work as k instead of yo.

I'm in the cable section; I'm working on multiple patterns at the same time. This one is turning out so beautiful I can't wait to block it.
Was a dream to knit crystal Roads
I received my order quickly. It feels very nice. I haven't started my shawl yet so is it possible to let you know what I think about the yarn after starting the project? I really love your patterns and you have even tempted me to get back into crochet.
It’s beautiful. Easy to follow instructions, very well written pattern. I’ll definitely recommend it to my crochet friends. Thank you so much for sharing your work.

Nice project, I should skit this winter.
I haven’t started this pattern yet, but I’m sure it’s going to turn out beautifully stitched.
This is a beautiful shawl! I have not started it yet but looking forward to soon!
So beautiful. Beyond my abilities at this time but I hope to accomplish it one day.
It is so beautiful! I have not done it as of yet, but wow!
Beautiful pattern, not difficult to understand, for an adventurous beginner
Not sure I can gives you an accurate review, I picked up the free pattern because I liked it, I read it and have not done it yet
I love your pattern :-) The explanations are always crystal clear and the result fantastic. Thanks a lot for your generosity!
Beautiful shawl, wish it was written not charted, it would have been a nice option for older people that can't see the chart as clearly, something to keep in mind for the future?
Impressive! Thank you!
This is gorgeous! Major WOW factor!! I'm really looking forward to working on this one. I've been looking for something different in a large shawl pattern (using sock or fingering weight) - thank you!
This is gorgeous! Major WOW factor - such a beautiful piece. I'll come back later when I've had a chance to work on it myself...
