Molehill is a semicircular shawl, worked from the bottom up, and decreased to the last 6 stitches, which are then grafted together, or joined with a three-needle bind-off.

The ground is garter stitch (wrong side rows are knitted) which makes for a quick project for most knitters.

The pattern is charted.

Gauge is not very significant, and size and texture can be easily altered by use of different needles and yarn.

Skills: This pattern is for intermediate level knitters. Skills necessary are paired double and triple decreasing, YO and grafting or three-needle bind-off.

Sizing: Knitting at given gauge, the finished shawl is blocked to 152 cm wide (60”) and 76 cm deep (30”).

Materials: approx. 500 m / 550 y of light fingering yarn.
A set of size 6 mm (US 10) needles (or size needed to achieve gauge if the same dimensions are desired).
A long circular needle is recommended to comfortably
accommodate all stitches at cast-on, but straight needles can also be used.
Stitch markers of different colours.
Tapestry needle, pins, and blocking mat.
