Stacks of building blocks, constructed with mosaic knitting, march across this asymmetrical triangular shawl. The same basic block structure repeats in sections of varying widths for an appearance ranging from the simple to the complex.

The Interlocken Shawl begins at one tip and grows to the opposite edge. The mosaic sections use slipped stitches to create the colorwork motif, while rows of Garter Stitch frame the mosaic blocks and provide a contrasting texture. The mosaic stitch pattern is charted.

Sample is 75×25” size
