Kristen Shawl

November 2012
6.0 mm (J)
Includes instructions for shawl and shawlette sizes
This pattern is available for free.

The Kristen Shawl is both delicate and cozy…a fabulous cold weather accessory. It follows a simple one row stitch pattern and you’ll work it up in no time. The yarn used here adds subtle self striping, but would be equally pretty with a solid color too. Included with this pattern are instructions for sizing for a regular sized shawl and a smaller “shawlette.”

The shawl was named after a dear reader and fabulous stitchy friend, Kristen. She contacted me through Ravelry recently and realized she had made a “mistake” while making the Butternut Squash Neckwarmer. While making it, she added an extra stitch at the end of the row and ended up with a triangle…such a neat little discovery! She kindly asked me if I could whip up a pattern and here it is! Thank you Kristen for your extra stitch…this one’s for you!
