This triangular shawl starts with one square at the bottom point. The stitches for subsequent squares are joined by picking up along the edge of the previous squares so don’t need to be sewn together. Features a solid color knit in garter stitch, with a variegated window done in Stockinette stitch to mimic the look of a stained glass window.

For another look, use your handpainted yarn leftovers to make each window a different color or try knitting the entire design with a solid color yarn.
