A Bit of Good Luck
“A Bit of Good Luck” is an easy to knit shawl / wrap designed to be made with super bulky weight yarn.
This shawl is quick to knit on big needles and would make a lovely gift…to wish a friend or loved one “a bit of good luck”.
Read more about this pattern (including some other choices for green yarn) on my blog.
DIRECTIONS FOR THREE SIZES:
Approximate sizes after blocking…
Small / Petite: 51” long x 13.5” wide (at widest point)
Medium: 55” long x 14” wide
Large: 59” long x 14.5” wide
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, increase stitches, decrease stitches, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends.
Blocking of finished shawl is highly recommended.
SUPER BULKY YARN:
Small / Petite: 200 - 210 yards
Medium: 225 - 240 yards
Large: 255 - 275 yards
This pattern will work well with many super bulky weight yarns.
I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in the color “Vermont Green” for the green shawl shown in the photos. The pattern will also work well with Lion Brand Thick & Quick Solids (available at many craft stores), Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (from Michael’s Craft Store) or many other super bulky yarns.
Stockinette stitch with US size 15 needles: approximately 8.5 stitches & 12 rows = 4”
This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms.
Written pattern with row by row instructions.
I’m sorry but I am unable to assist with questions regarding how to adapt this pattern for lighter weight yarn. That would require writing a new pattern!
