I wrote up this recipe for the children in my knitting club as they had been fancying my triangular shawls. It’s so simple I’m sure they will be able to make it and as it’s knit bottom-up, they can make a small size to fit a teddy or doll, or they can knit on until it’s the size they like.


  • garter stitch
  • kfb increase
  • binding off

The sample used 50g of yarn (around 240m) but any amount of yarn (and any weight, if appropriate needles are used) can be used.
