Small shawls are a great way to show off the sock yarn that's too pretty to wear on your feet!
This crescent shaped shawl has a great shape that's easy to wear, as it stays on without a shawl pin; it can work as a scarf and be draped in many different ways.
It's designed to use one skein (about 425 yds) of a solid, or semi-solid yarn such as Mountain Colors Crazyfoot.
A larger size is provided as well.
Beginning with a center neck cast on, the shawl features 2 columns of yarn-over increases, plus increases at the edges. The first section is in garter stitch, so the knitter will see fast progress. The pretty lace edging forms a ruffled edge to complete the graceful feminine look.
Approx 52 (78) in / 130 (196) cm edge to edge and 15 (18.5) in / 37 (46) cm from midpoint (neck) to bottom edge, after blocking.
Pattern has been edited and test-knit. Both written and charted instructions are provided for the lace.
24 sts per 4 in/10 cm
425 yards of Fingering weight

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest ...
I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
