Chaya Shawl & Shawlette

from Chiagu Knitting Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Chaya Shawl & Shawlette
Chaya Shawl & Shawlette Shawl
Chaya Shawl & Shawlette Shawlette
Chaya Shawl & Shawlette Shawl as worn

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, yarn over, increase, decrease

Pattern Description:

The two halves of this shawl are knit in different directions to play with the self-striping or handpainted yarn.

Simple garter stitch interspersed with dropped stitches make this an easy and fun project to knit. And because it's knit in two halves, it's easy to make it as big as possible with whatever amount of yarn you have: simply knit the first half until you're a little under half done with your yarn, then start the second half!

The pattern is suitable for all weights of yarn.


Gauge isn't very important for this shawl. (How refreshing, right!) The fabric should be loose and drapey without being holey.
Jitterbug sample is 15 sts/4" in garter stitch. Noro sample is 21 sts/4"

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Full Size: 50" across top edge and 21" long at center back, blocked
  • Shawlette: 37" across top edge and 16" long at center back, blocked


  • 1 Noro Kureyon Sock or Colinette Jitterbug
  • US #5 circular needles

You Will Also Need:

  • lockable stitch markers (or waste yarn)
  • tapestry needle

350 yards of Fingering weight
