The shawl starts with a single stitch and gradually increases by one new stitch on every right side row, until it’s the size you’d like, or you run out of yarn. When you’re done with the knitting just bind off and add a fringe!

This is a really simple project which makes for perfect comfort knitting. It’s easy enough for a novice and the side-to-side construction means you can simply bind off whenever you want - you’ll have the perfect triangle shape. Because of this ‘bias’ construction, the fabric is stretchy and will wrap and drape beautifully.

Stitches/techniques used:

  • Long tail cast on (or any other stretchy method)
  • Kfb increases
  • Knit stitch
  • Bind off (any loose bind off will do)
