Pattern Description:

My crazy self decided that I needed to knit a shawl for my godmother when she visited from overseas. Hence, I commenced Operation: 2-Day Shawl. The shawl was designed, written and knitted in less than 48 hours. No kidding!

The Weekend Shawl is the reincarnated with options for two different yarn weights in three sizes each (6 sizes total). The shawl shape (3/4 circle) ensures that it stays on your shoulders without any slippage or pins. It's worked top-down in a simple background of Stockinette stitch. The lace border adds a simple elegance.

While you may not be wacky enough to knit it in two days, it sure is nice to know that you can, right?

This pattern is my best seller in all markets - all digital venues and also in print.
