Altostratus is an asymmetrical triangular shawl that is specifically designed for variegated hand painted yarn paired with a solid or semi-solid yarn in a complementary colour.
An all-over garter stitch pattern makes this a relaxing knit. Elements of modular knitting, biased construction and change of knitting direction make this project challenging and fun. The main body of the shawl features a three-part striping sequence which adds visual interest. The outer two sequences are balanced and mirror each other, while the stripes in the centre section are based on Fibonacci Sequence Numbers.
The gauge is not critical, however the finished size and yarn usage will be different from the stated in the pattern.
