Designed to use just one skein (or more, it’s easy to adjust) of any gorgeous handpainted yarn to make a shawlette for someone who’s close to you too!

This simple but stylish shawl is knitted from one end with gradual increases to form a triangular shawl which is fun to knit and easy to wear. The zigzag border with eyelets gives it a nice touch and makes the knitting interesting.

One: approx. 166cm/65.25” wide and 38 cm/15” long at center spine.

1 skein of any fingering weight yarn.

4.0 mm/US #6 circular needle (80 cm/32” long).

1 stitch marker, tapestry needle for weaving.

17 sts and 44 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.

A big thank you goes to our fellow knitters for translating the pattern into many languages. Hanapaimen, Handzik, Emmacr, Alice281, Fetimka and Mnet75, thank you!
