Tasseled Shawl

Lion Brand® Tweed Stripes®


14 sts + 21 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 1 st.


1. Shawl begins and ends with a narrow (3 st) length of St st. In the first half of the Shawl, sts are increased, in the second half sts are decreased.
2. Tassels are sewn onto Shawl.

First Half

Cast on 3 sts. Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures about 3 in. (7.5 cm) from beg, end with a WS row. Note: End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
Row 1: K1, kfb in next st, k to end of row - 4 sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Purl.
Rows 3-6: Rep Rows 1 and 2 two more times - 6 sts when all increases are completed.
Row 7: Knit.
Row 8: Purl.
Rep Rows 1-8 until you have 45 sts on your needles, then rep Rows 1 and 2 until you have 90 sts on your needles.
End with a WS row.

Second Half
Row 1 (RS):
K1, k2tog, k to end of row - 89 sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Purl.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 until 45 sts rem.
Next Row: Knit.
Next Row: Purl.
Next 6 Rows: Rep Rows 1 and 2 three times - 42 sts rem.
Rep last 8 rows until 3 sts rem. Work in St st until piece measures same as First Half. Bind off.

Tassels (make 3)

Wrap yarn around 4 in. (10 cm) piece of cardboard 40 times. Cut a piece of yarn 10 in. (15 cm) long and thread doubled into large-eyed blunt needle. Insert needle under all strands at upper edge of cardboard. Pull tightly and knot securely near strands. Cut yarn loops at lower edge of cardboard. Cut a piece of yarn 60 in. (152.5 cm) long and wrap tightly around loops 1/2 in. (1 cm) below top knot to form Tassel neck. Knot securely and wrap two strands together around the tassel until wraps measure 1 1/2 in. (4 cm) wide; thread ends into needle and weave ends to center of Tassel. Trim Tassel ends evenly.

Sew a Tassel to each point of Shawl.

Weave in ends.

would like to make this...from the comments, I will do a garter stitch for some rows so it doesn't roll up...pretty in the yarn called for...
