A simple triangular shawl. Great for a first shawl project for a beginner.

It measures approx 160cm across the top edge and about 45cm down center spine. Blocking greatly enhances this shawl!

You start at the top with a few stitches, you then increase at the edges and down the centre spine.

You can use a stitch marker to mark your spine and remind you to make your increases.

This is a good pattern to practice using a circular needle (80cm would be a good length). Remember you are knitting back and forth on the circular needle. You are are not knitting a tube.

A great way to practice yarn overs to make holes on purpose! And it is easy to adapt - add more or less eyelets, make it smaller or bigger. REMEMBER making changes to the pattern may mean you will need more or less yarn!
