Binx Shawl

Binx Shawl

$ 0.00

A nearly traditional Shetland triangle shawl with an asymmetrical twist, Binx is a basic shawl formula that allows you to use any 5-shade gradient yarn.  The skills needed for this pattern are very straight forward: you should be able to knit, knit 2 together, increase by knitting into the front and back of a stitch, and knit through the back loop of two stitches.

Hardware needed:

Black Trillium Fibres Lilt Sock Gradient, 165g kit. Or Black Trillium Fibres Pebble Sock Gradient, 165g kit. Or Black Trillium Fibres Sublime DK Gradient, 250g kit. (this yarn is forthcoming August 2016)

A calculator and a yarn scale that is accurate to .1 grams are also necessary for this knitting pattern.


Lilt Aphrodite Gradient shown is about 90 inches wide and 31 inches at the spine.


Variable, use needles two or three sizes up from a typical knitting gauge with your chosen yarn.


Lilt Gradient: US 5 32” circular

Pebble Gradient: US 6 32” circular

Sublime Gradient: US 7 32” circular
