Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, Purl, yarn over

Pattern Description:

This is a shawl originally designed for using up sock yarn leftovers. It requires 330m of the main colour and 150m of contrast yarns - the pattern gives a breakdown of the lengths of yarn required for each contrast section.

It's a quick and easy knit using Knit, Purl and Yarn Overs to create the pattern, and an optional picot cast off which combines casting on and off to create a pretty edge.

The finished shawl is crescent shaped so will wrap around your shoulders in a hug and it tends to stay put without a shawl pin. It will also hang nicely at the front if you prefer.

This can be knit from lace to 4 ply yarns, and double knit yarns using a larger needle. There are examples of shawls made with different yarn weights can be seen on Ravelry.
