Description and notes 

Although the shape of this asymmetrical shawl seems complicated, perhaps this is the simplest thing you have ever knitted.

The design is based on 8 sharp triangles, each of which is displaced along a line reminiscent of the pursuit curve (technical term - trans.). There are no connections here - the shape is achieved with the help of shortened rows. But do not be scared: there is no trouble with wrapped loops and everything knits with garter stitch. 

Markers for loops make work much easier. You will need 8 of them; 7 will remain in the places where you placed them, until the end of the work, and 1 will travel along the rows when they become shorter. If you follow the instructions for the first pair of rows very carefully, then you will automatically knit them. 

When you type loops, both in the beginning and in the middle of the shawl, use any dialing method that gives a stable edge with loosely loops. 

When you move to the shortened rows, do not worry about turning the hinges - the product actually looks better without them. 

Dial 90 p. 

1 row: persons. 
2 row: remove 1 st., 2 faces., Place marker, faces. to the end of the row. 
3rd row: remove 1 st., Knit people. before the marker, remove the marker, turn. 
4 row: remove 1 st., 2 faces., Place marker, faces. to the end of the row. 
Repeat rows 3-4 until there are no working loops (ie there is nowhere to put a marker). 

1 row: remove 1 st., Knit faces., Until there is exactly 16 points left before the marker, turn (for the 2nd triangle, knit to the 16th loop until the end of the row, turn). 
2 row: place marker (stationary), remove 1 pt., 2 faces., Place marker (moving), faces. to the end of the series, dial 16 points, turn. 
3 row: remove 1 st, knit to the marker, remove the moving marker, rotate. 
4 row: remove 1 st., 2 faces., Place marker, faces. to the end of the row. 
Repeat rows 3-4 until there are no working loops. 

Remove 1 item, tie the faces. all the loops on the spokes, removing the markers (you may need to tie a few loops behind the back - this depends on how the hinges lie). 

Spray the faces. 4 rows.
Close the hinges. 

* You can add as many triangles as you want. 
* You could sew a button as a bright stroke, and also that she would hold a small shawl in place. 
* You can use a yarn of a different thickness: 
a knitting density of 20 p. = 10 cm-gain 45 
pips and retreat by 10 p. Knot density of 22 p. = 10 cm-gain 60 pips and step on 13 pts. 
* You can try knitting each triangle in a different color. The shawl will look good, even if you knit it from the rest of the yarn in a completely random way (perhaps from the remnants of a good yarn for socks
