Simple Shawl

Lion Brand« Woolspun (old)


Gauge is not important; however, the shawl should be "drapey". 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


Shawl is knit entirely in garter stitch (knit every row).

Cast on 3 stitches.
Row 1 Slip first stitch as if to purl, yarn over, knit across. Repeat Row 1 until last skein is nearly gone.

Tip When you are nearly out of yarn, finish your row. Then measure the remaining yarn against your last row. You will need 3.5 to 4 times the length of the last row in order to have enough yarn to bind off successfully.

Bind off.

Simple Shawl Reviewed by Tammy White on 2013-01-23 *****
This is a really fun and fast shawl to knit up. I love the easy pattern. I am using the Silky Twist Yarn in the Purple Haze color. Absolutely beautiful color.
