Unjung Yun’s Domino design is a fun take on the versatile triangular shawl. Worked in a series of repeating squares and triangles, using simple bind-offs and cast-ons to create the openings. Knit in a variegated sport weight yarn, the lattice work really shows off the colors and still looks crisp and modern.

Gauge: 24 sts and 49 rows to 4″ in garter st using US #6 or #7 needles, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Yarn: Try a light weight variegated like Arroyo Yarn by Malabrigo.
