Big Debbie Shawl was written exclusively for Yarnover Truck, Southern California’s first mobile yarn store. Yarnover Truck made it’s debut on March 23rd, 2013 in Burbank, California and services Southern California. Click here to find out where Yarnover Truck will be headed to next!

The Big Shawl is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. The shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 265+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 27 stitches and a ssk with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch. This is a great shawl for beginning-intermediate Lace Knitters.

Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.

A note about Gauge
Are you a tight knitter or a loose knitter? If you are a loose knitter please consider going down a few needle sizes. If you are a tight knitter you may have to go up a few sizes to get gauge. Your swatch should be stretched after you’ve soaked it in water and then pinned it out to make it wider to dry, just as you would with the finished shawl.

This quick-to-knit triangle lace shawl is simple and elegant with its lovely, knit-on lace edging.

Size US 7/4.5 mm Knitting Needles, or size needed to get gauge.
