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!
