From my family and friends to the enjoyment knitting brings, I have so many things to be thankful for. This shawl is the accumulation of my gratitude and appreciation for the numerous blessings in my life. I welcome you to celebrate your blessings through the knitting of your own Thankful shawl. The act of practicing gratitude is a cornerstone of wholehearted living, and as we enter the giving session, I cannot think of a greater virtue to reflect upon in your knitting. Notes: - This pattern is written for two shawl sizes: small and large. - This shawl has a symmetrical triangular construction using M1R and M1L increases on every right side row. - Every wrong side row in the entire shawl is knit across. - No purl stitches are used in this shawl whatsoever. - This shawl is a repeat of two sections. - Each section is compromised of 10 rows each. - Simply add or remove sections for desired shawl size. - Gauge is not critical for this project. - I designed this shawl for a confident, beginner knitter; I explain how to perform all stitches and offer numerous resources for additional help in the pattern if needed.
