The Ballerina Shawl
The Ballerina Shawl knits up quickly with two skeins of sock yarn! It uses 455 yards of Knitted Wit Featherweight yarn and a size US 8/5 mm needle. The pattern is knit as a traditional triangle, starting with a few stitches and increasing out from the center neck to the edge. The Ballerina Shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 200+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 20 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch.
The Ballerina Shawl has been professionally tech edited, test knit and checked for accuracy and clarity. The Ballerina Shawl is knit with 455 yards of Knitted Wit Featherweight and comes with both written and charted instructions.
Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
