The Yowza Weigh It Shawl was created in the spirit of dreamy simplicity.

I cast on 9 stitches to start and never counted my stitches again. No counting or keeping track of rows is needed. The versatile top-down shallow crescent-shaped shawl is knit in garter stitch throughout. Using one 8 ounce Yowza Whatta Skein by the talented dyer Miss Babs and your trusty kitchen scale you will simply fly through the knitting of this shawl. It is one of the most addicting, fast and simple shawl designs possible with a one row repeat for the body of the shawl. The outcome is a stunning and elegant shawl. There are only two places you need to weigh your yarn in the pattern. Dream and garter stitch away!

The sample is knit in the Top Secret colorway which is a one-of-a-kind Babette skein that is not available. Babs Austerman, the dyer and owner of Miss Babs says the closest thing to the Top Secret in a repeatable Babette is a colorway called Gal Noir. www.missbabs.com
