Loom Knit Three Seasons Shawl
This pattern was inspired by two other patterns; one needle knit, and one board knit. I have always liked the needle knitted shawls and blankets that are knitted by casting on 2 or 3 stitches and then increasing each row until you have a triangle the size desired. I wanted to do this on the knitting board, but was limited by the size of the board. Then I remembered the wonderful Homespun Afghan, designed by Pat and Kim Novak of the Authentic Knitting Board Co. By setting the spacer to 1” and using a bulky homespun yarn, you are able to knit a single piece that will measure bigger than the board. By combining these two ideas the Three Seasons Shawl was born. Great for spring, fall, or winter, you will enjoy knitting and wearing this soft, luxurious shawl.
Knitting Loom: Small gauge double sided knitting board with 84 pegs. The 28” Authentic Knitting Board set at 1” spacer setting was used in the sample.
Yarn: 415 yards of bulky homespun yarn. Lion Brand Homespun was used in the sample. (It took a little more than 2 skeins.)
Notions: Tapestry Needle, Knitting tool, Crochet hook
Gauge: Not terribly important. Mine came out to approx. 8 sts x 10 sts over a 4”x4” swatch (or 2 sts x 2.5 sts over a 1”x1” swatch).
NOTE: Because this is an older pattern, and the internet changes so quickly, some of the informational links may no longer be working. If this is the case, www.knittingboard.com, or a quick internet search should yield the results you need. Happy Looming!
