This delightful shawl is created by combining a contemporary shape with an old-fashioned, zig-zag edge (no binding off!). It knits up quickly and is a great use of that one skein of precious sock yarn in your stash.

Blocking is a must for this shawl - it makes it very drapey with nice, sharp points on your applied edge.

This shawl is knit from the tip to the wide end finished with a knitted-on edge in a contrasting colour and using a fingering weight yarn. This shawl has one size (adjustable).

Skill Level:

Skills: knit, purl, lace knitting, knitted-on edge

Finished Measurements:
approx 152 cm long measured along the straight edge and 96 cm wide at the bottom lying flat after blocking

Note: sample used 20 g / 84 m of Bohoyarns Ramble sock yarn for the knitted on edge (this is included in the total yardage listed)

Just a note that your st counts should work out. The rep of * to * in Row 1 of the Lacey Section doesn’t complete. If you just follow the instructions it’s fine. The PDF has been updated with expanded instructions. xo
