A shawl or shawlette knit from one side to the other in one piece.
Start at one end and keep knitting until you run out of yarn. The edging is done as you go, that’s what I love about it. I love the look of a lace edging, but don’t want to go back and add it later by “knitting it on”.
A fun, easy knit, perfect for those one or two skeins of special fingering weight yarn. The shawl is started at one side and a combination of increases and decreases forms a graceful triangular/crescent shaped shawl. The shawl is worked in garter stitch with a small patterned border, reminiscent of rippling water. Just enough pattern to keep it interesting, but not complicated. A complete list of abbreviations and a stitch glossary explaining the techniques used in the project are included.
Skill level: Advanced beginner to intermediate.
Any fingering weight yarn can be used. About 400yds for a shawlette or 800yds for a shawl. I recommend using a larger needle size than recommended on the label for a loose gauge.
Gauge: 22 sts and 22 rows = 4in/10cm in garter stitch with US 6/4.25mm needles unblocked.
19 sts and 19 rows = 4in/10cm in garter stitch blocked with US 6/4.25mm needles blocked.
Gauge is not critical, but it is important to knit at a looser gauge than recommended on the label.
Needles: 1, 32in circular needle, US 6/4.25mm
Sizes: The amount and weight of yarn you use will determine the finished size. These measurements are approximate.
400 yds of fingering weight yarn: after blocking; 46in wide and 13in deep.
800 yds of fingering weight yarn: after blocking; 76in wide and 21in deep.
