Announcing the Spring 2017 Textured Triangle Shawl Knit-Along:
It is almost time for another knit-along! This time we will be knitting the Textured Triangle Shawl designed by Diane Moyer, a FREE pattern on Red Heart’s website. The shawl is made using Soft Essentials yarn, available exclusively at Michaels stores and Red Heart’s website.
The format of this Knit-Along will be the same as in the past. We will run the event for four weeks and each week, starting May 3rd, you will get a new video tutorial from me and the written instructions for that section. I will break the pattern down into manageable sections and be here for your questions along the way. I am so excited to get started on the Texture Triangle Shawl Knit-Along with you.

The Textured Triangle Shawl is a great project for those of you looking to expand your knitting skills. We will work on knitted lace in this project. Finished shawl measures 70″ [178 cm] at widest top edge and 30″ [76 cm] at longest point at center back, so it’s one-size-fits-all. With the shawl being one-size-fits-all you won’t have to worry about making adjustments in size. Join us in the Textured Triangle Shawl Knit-Along and you will have a wonderful spring wardrobe staple to use on cool nights and in air conditioned buildings.
As we get started head over to Ravelry and add the pattern to your favorites and your project list. Add a picture of your supplies so that we can see what everyone will be working with. You can also share this on the Knit-Along Facebook page.
Use the hashtag #MarlyBirdKAL to share your projects! A knit-along, or KAL, is a group of people coming together to knit the same project in the same timeframe. If you start late or knit slower, that’s OK! All of the material will stay available for free. Be sure to join the Facebook group so that you know when each section is going to be live and you can ask all of your questions there.
For this project you will need to get a few supplies before we begin. Pick up your supplies now so you’ll be ready to go when the KAL starts! Take advantage of the special offer Red Heart is offering for anyone planning to participate in the Spring 2017 Textured Triangle Shawl Knit-Along.

The original shawl in the written pattern was made in the color 7420 Charcoal. For the Textured Triangle Shawl Knit-Along I am knitting one in 7520 Teal, and the Red Heart team will be sharing photos of one in 7405 Greyhound. Any color of Soft Essentials works for this shawl. I can’t wait to see what color you pick for your shawl.
