Knitted Winter Shawl
From Godey’s ladies Book:
Several of our subscribers having requested that this useful article may be arranged so as to form an easy occupation during the long evenings, we have made the direction as simple as possible. It can be worked in nearly every kind of wool, and the size varied at pleasure, making it either for a small shawl to wear across the shoulders, or carried out for a large wrapper. If made in strong yarn it is especially suited for charitable gifts at this present season.
Gauge is not significant for this pattern. Directions are given for sport, fingering and worsted weight.
