The Market Shawl is a classic triangular shaped shawl with a simple but graphic texture. Version 1 uses yarn overs to highlight the center spine and edges. Version 2 replaces the yarn over with a make one and adds a ruffled bind off. Any of these design elements can be mixed and matched according to personal preferences.

The finished size can easily be modified by adjusting the number of pattern repeats. If using the ruffled bind off with larger sizes, keep in mind that this decorative edging requires approximately 75% the amount of yarn used for the body of the shawl. Don’t run out of yarn – plan accordingly.

Version 2 requires 450 yards fingering weight yarn and US #6 (4.0mm) needles.
