We’ve revised and updated this pattern to make it better - please refer to the “Boomerang” pattern in our pattern library for the new version!


The boomerang shape is created by executing decreases on one side and increases on the other, and can be used with any yarn to make a shawl as large or small as you like. Feel free to be creative and use our multi-textured yarn to make a shawl that is uniquely yours!

The sample was knit using a little over half of a Cat Mountain Fiber Arts Fusion 500 Skein, and measures approximately 52 inches from tip to tip. You may choose to make a larger shawl that uses more of the skein by adjusting the number of stripes in the repeats. For example, since I did 25 stitch repeats for the sample as indicated in the pattern, I was locked in to having enough yarn for an additional 25 stitch repeat in another texture in order to conitnue, and because the rows get longer with each additional row, I did not have enough to do this and make the shawl consistent. BUT, if you change yarns every 5 or 10 rows, your yarn will go much farther.
