Picot Triangle Shawl
A (picot) Triangle design shawl using wedge technique inspired by Hexagon blanket by Charity Windham. Charity and I talked about combining her wedge and my picots for a frilly garter ridge reversible shawl.  This Picot Triangle Shawl is a generous size for larger sizes up to 76″ wide from end to end! Cast on Edge is 53″ and can be made smaller for smaller sizing needs.

Stitch gauge:

4 sts per inch x 8 rows per inch in garter stitch

Loom:

7/16″ gauge loom to be single knit with at least 168 pegs. Loom used in sample Knitting Board 28″ with peg extenders.Alternate loom(s): Kiss Looms can adjust to appropriate gauge. Be sure to swatch. Use Kiss Fine Gauge Fixed 2; set up with two 83 peg long sides and two 7 peg ends. Use 165 pegs (loom will be 180 pegs). For Martha Stewart (MS loom) use two kits; set up with four 36 peg straights, two 12 peg medium straights, and four 6 peg corners with pegs in all holes for 3/8″ gauge. Cast on 189 pegs (192 pegs on loom).

Yarn:

800 yards medium weight (4) Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable color Petunia.  3 balls used in sample. 9.85 oz/280 grams finished weight.Loom Along Video: http://youtu.be/xicPyxHNVmQ

Abbreviations:

EW – Ewrap
P – Purl
HS – Half Stitch
SL – Slip (skip first stitch)
st – Stitch
CO – Cast On
BO – Bind Off

Cast on:

Picot CO 165 pegs. (starting on left working to right if right handed, Place removable Stich Marker on peg 1) http://youtu.be/MdtQZm9wUE0

Row 1: SL 1, P to marker (all odd rows will repeat this way.)
Row 2: HS 1 at marked peg & move marker 1 peg to right (do NOT work HS st), EW to peg 165, Cable CO 3, BO 3 to form picot (See notes below on details for Cable CO and BO). I like to have 3 st markers on pegs 166-168 to show where picots need to be added on even numbered rows. For less picots on edging only, add picots every 4th row. As the pattern reads, this edge will be fuller than the cast on picots to give it a ruffled look when draped.
Repeat Rows 1 & 2 until last HS is at peg 164 & ending on row Row 2. This row will be HS 1, EW 1.

Begin Picot Bind Off*.

*This is an alternate to my standard picot bind off just for this pattern.
**Cable CO 3, BO 4 (** rep between **,** til one st left on loom, EW 1 cut tail and pull through) See video at minute 21:14; it should start there. http://youtu.be/xicPyxHNVmQ?t=21m14s
Weave in both tails into project.  If using color changing yarn be sure to weave like colored tails to closest color.
Blocking may be needed due to tension and eveness of such a large project. Do NOT steam block acrylic or it will “kill” it! Block with a light washing and let dry pinned on blocking board if needed. See bottom of pattern on Mitered Square Lovey for wet blocking instructions. http://www.goodknitkisses.dreamhosters.com/mitered-square-picot-lovey-free-pattern/
Notes on HS
Unlike an EW (where the working yarn is wrapped from the back between the next peg and around the front of the  desired stitch/peg to the back) the HS wraps to the front between the previous peg to the front of the desired stitch/peg then between the next stich (peg).

Cable CO Notes.

Refer to this video for visual instructions on the Picot Triangle Shawl.

Non-Picot shawl option:

Cable Cast on 165 stitches and continue in main pattern.  Do not add edge picots.  Bind off in Stretchy Bind or a very loose Basic Bind off using the E-wrap stitch for knit stitches.  Do not pull tight.Happy Looming!!
