Triangle Shawl

A while ago I saw this beautiful yarn from Durable, called Colourful. They had a great color combination with glaucus, gray and black, so the purchase was made very fast.

Today I finally finished the shawl. The result is beautiful, I think, but making the shawl required all the patience I had in me, because I had to unravel the yarn all the time. It's made of four loose strings (not twined), and to get a nice turnover in colors one of the strings changes color after several meters, then another one turns color and so on. But in my hands one or two of the strings were pushed forward the whole time, so they became uneven and every now and then I had to cut of the strings because they were so entangled. But...., now that it's finished I really love the result!!

I used this free pattern for the shawl
