This simple shawlette design is perfect for using those single skeins of candy colored variegated yarn that follow you home from the yarn shop, but can’t find a use for. The garter stitch and open star stitch sections help break up unwanted pooling and show off quick color changes. This pattern can be worked in any weight yarn by adjusting needle size and the number of pattern repeats.

When using different weights of yarn for this shawlette, try these suggested needle sizes for proper drape:
Lace - US 5-6 (3.75-4mm)
Sock/Fingering - US 6-7 (4-4.5mm)
Sport - US 7-9 (4-5.5mm)
DK - US 9 -10 (5.5-6mm)
Worsted - US 10.5-11 (6.5-8mm)
Bulky - US 13-15 (9-10mm)

To make a larger or smaller shawlette, add or subtract repeats from either section, additional details are included in the pattern on where to add and subtract rows.
