So you get yourself three skeins of wonderful TOSH DK and you start wondering 3 skiens huh? Too few to make a sweater, too many to make a hat. So what now? Maybe a shawl?. Do you want lace? Nope, you want the shawl to be warm and cozy, not see-through. Do you want cables? Nope, too fussy. So why not just stick to your good old friend Garter? And Stockinette to get some variety? And short rows for the challenge and excitement? And then you knit. You increase here, wrap and turn there and wait a second! The shawl starts resembling a bat. OMG! So what do you name it? Dracula? Nosferatu? Eric? Or maybe just THE VAMPYRE? I hope you have as much fun knitting the shawl as I had seeing it being born. :-) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY increasing stitches decreasing stitches short rows GAUGE 18 sts and 28 rows in 10 cm / 4 in St st measured flat after wet blocking. Working gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows in 10 cm / 4 in St st. The gauge isn(tm)t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage of yarn. Note from me about the yardage: If you have only three skeins, please make sure to obtain the correct working gauge. I used all 3 skeins of Tosh DK for my shawl. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size: approx. 117 cm / 47 wide and 60 cm / 24 long at center spine. SUGGESTED YARN 680 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Madelinetosh TOSH DK COLORWAY tart

I'm a mother, former teacher and a knitwear fanatic. I learned my first stitches from my mom when I was a teenager, but I gave up knitting quickly afterwards. Having my first baby brought back my passion with great impact and this time I also started designing knitwear for children and sometimes for adults. I live with my husband and two kids in Poland.
