Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, increasing, decreasing

Pattern Description:

One end slips through the other for an easy to wear shawl. You can wear this in any season, you can wear it over a top or over your coat. It is very versatile. Shawls have become very popular, but they can be annoying to keep from falling. This one will stay put.

This garter stitch shawl is basically a large rectangle gathered into ties.
What can be easier than knitting a rectangle? It can also be boring, so just when you have had enough of garter stitch, you get to knit something interesting.

Included in the pattern are photos, a complete list of abbreviations, a stitch glossary and schematic.

If you choose another yarn, make sure it has a little resiliency to it, it will stretch but you want it to hug your shoulders too. No 100% cotton please.

Sarahmontie on

My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
