The Tessellation Shawl is inspired by the Leadenhall Building in the City of London, UK, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. The structure of distinctive building contains multiple triangular shapes which inspire the shawl’s textured stitch pattern. Each individual triangle motif appears to combine with the next to form a tessellating grid pattern across the shawl. Each triangle shape is knitted in a combination of knit and purl stitches.

The shawl’s asymmetric shape is created by knitting a right-angled triangle on the bias. This shawl can be knitted with just one ball or skein of 4ply yarn (approximately 400m) making it an ideal travel project or gift for a special person.

Instructions are also included for a DK weight shawl knitted with 2 x 100g skeins of DK yarn (approx 450m), shown in the variegated colourway, and an aran weight shawl knitted with 3 x 100g skeins of aran yarn (approximately 480m), shown in pink in photos.
