Try something new and different with this beautiful triangular shawl with woven stripes.
The technique for these stripes is really easy; you just carry your contrasting color yarn while slipping stitches.

Yarn: 2 skeins of BFL Singles by The Uncommon Thread (100% blue faced Leicester wool; 437 yards 400 m/100g); or approx. 600 yards of fingering weight yarn in 2 colors. You will need 300 yards in color A (shown in colorway Tea Smoked - warm pink) and 300 yards in color B (shown in colorway Bois - deep brown).
Needles: US 6 (4 mm) needles.

23 st and 36 rows to 4” (10cm) in garter st on US 6 (4 mm) needles after blocking.

This shawl is worked from the centre top down.
