This pattern was inspired during a girls knit day at a garden party. The colors of the plants, the promise of spring and summer, and all the hugs from good friends spun together to form the Girlfriends Shawl. Knitted out of a cotton and wool summer blend, it is a great shawl to toss on during cool spring and summer evenings out with your girlfriends. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Pattern is knitted in garter from side to side and involved simple increasing (yarn overs) and decreasing (knit 2 together). A slip stitch is also included on one side for a smooth edge. GAUGE 5.5 sts / 8 rows per inch over garter stitch (pre-blocked) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12 inches x 52 inches fully blocked Because of the garter stitch, this shawl has a LOT of give. You can stretch out the shawl for more length or simply let it drape naturally.
