Pattern Description:

An easy, fun accessory project to knit in your favorite sock-weight yarn. A bit of cabling and lace dress up the edge of basic garter stitch, and the simple repeat makes for soothing knitting.

Both one- and two-skein versions of Haven use the same construction technique. Numbers in parentheses indicate varied instructions for the two sizes, i.e.- one-skein (two-skein).

Shawl is knit from side-to-side, starting and ending at the narrowest points.

For two-skein version, it is easy to adjust for different yarn weights or individual knitting style.

  • approx. 72 (100)? wingspan, 17 (22)? deep at widest point, after wet-blocking.

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 stitch marker, tapestry needle, blocking pins.
