This beautiful triangular shawl is worked sideways in one piece from one point to the other. The corkscrew fringes are knit into the shawl as you go.
You will need 180 g - 200 g of Wollmeise yarn or 560 m - 622 m of a comparable fibre and two bells for the ends of the shawl.
The only skill required is being comfortable with working from a chart. All other techniques, i.e. the increases and decreases as well as the cast-on and bind-off, the I-cord plus the short rows are explained in a detailed illustrated appendix.
24 sts and 38 rows = 10 cm (4 in)
- stocking st
- US#2.5/3 mm
680 yards of Fingering weight

My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
