This shawl has been described by knitters as "texture love." It's elegantly simple and uses just knits and purls to have a big impact. This pattern is for a square shawl with an open neck that can be worked in any DK or worsted yarn and knit to any desired size. It's a very adaptable, personalize-able pattern, so it's hard to say exactly how much yarn you will want to use. Two skeins of tosh dk is more than enough for a shawl with a 15" center spine down the back. Other weights of yarn and gauges may require different yardage. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl slip stitches from left needle to right GAUGE 20 sts = 4"/10 cm in Stockinette Stitch; exact gauge is not crucial SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS adjustable size shawlette has a 13" to 15" back center spine

Supplies Needed

  • Yarn: about 400 yards DK weight; also works in worstsed
  • long circular knitting needles, size US 7/4.5mm or other as desired
  • 3 locking stitch markers or safety pins
