The Headwind Shawl features a unique modular construction to create a shape reminiscent of a swirling gust. This shawl is composed of eight equilateral triangles; each triangle is worked in the round from the outside edge to center while being joined to the preceding triangle.
This shawl is composed of eight equilateral triangles, each worked in the round from the outside edge to the center. Each subsequent triangle is picked up from one edge of the previous, thus joining the triangles as they are worked. When working triangles, change to shorter circular needle and double-pointed needles as necessary.
