A Slice of Heaven to knit

A Slice of Heaven is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that is knit in two colors. Sections of garter stitch alternate with a sampler of 16 stitch patterns that are knit in a contrasting color.

Sorry about the photos. My shawl is so big that I couldn’t get a full photo of it that would do justice to the detail.

You’ll need two skeins of sock yarn in a main color and a contrast color (at least 400 yards of MC and 200 yards of CC). I discovered that I had used a nonstandard size 6 knitting needle (4.25 mm) after I was done knitting. You can use a size 6 needle for a slightly smaller shawl or use a size 7 needle for a similar size shawl though you may need a little more yarn.

The unused color is carried along the neckline in a new technique that also increases the stitch count. So there are only 4 ends to weave in when you are done with the shawl.

The pictured shawl measured 64” neckline x 15” deep. After blocking it grew to 75” neckline x 18” deep.

The 7 page pattern has written instructions only and a close up photo of each stitch pattern used in the shawl.

I’m in love with my shawl! I hope you decide to knit your own slice of heaven. :-)

I love this!

Does the pattern give instructions on how to make it smaller? I'd just want more of a scarf size...length no more than 50-60 inches.

If you want to make a smaller size of the shawl, only work as many sections as you need to get the size you want.
