The Yowza Weigh It Shawl 2 was once again created in the spirit of dreamy simplicity.

I cast on 9 stitches to start and never counted my stitches again. The versatile half-hexagon or raglan-shaped shawl is another all-time favorite shawl shape of mine. It sits so nicely on your shoulders due to the two raglan-style lines of shaping in the body of the shawl. It can be worn many ways, over the shoulders and tied behind your back to create a shrug, over the shoulders and tied in the front, or wrapped up snugly around your neck to name a few.

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 another of the most addicting, fast and simple top-down shawl designs with a two row repeat (and one row is all knit) for the body of the shawl. The border is a light-ruffle with a very simple yarn-over stitch to create a more open and lighter weight fabric. The outcome is a wearable and simple shawl. There are only two places you need to weigh your yarn in the pattern.

And for those that just have to count I did put in a couple of counts to sooth the worries away for you:)

Dream and garter stitch away!

This is the second Yowza Weigh It Shawl in the series of 4 shawls I will be releasing. Each shawl is a no-counting, weight it only shawl with a completely different shape and weighing points.
