The Yowza Weigh It Shawl 3 was once again created in the spirit of dreamy simplicity. The third time is definitely a charm.

I cast on 9 stitches to start and never counted the stitches again. The versatile triangle-shape shawl with a light ribbed ruffle is another favorite shawl shape of mine. I was inspired by a recent shawl knitalong I hosted where a couple of participants put gorgeous ribbed-ruffle edgings on their Yowza shawls. So I added a ribbed edge in version 3. You could also continue in garter stitch to the very end if preferred. Both options are in the pattern.

Using one 8 oz. Yowza 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 of the rows is all knit) for the body of the shawl. The border is a light-ruffle. The outcome is a wearable and simple shawl to love. There are only two places you need to weigh your yarn in the pattern. I had 4 grams remaining at the end.

Be sure to check out the original Yowza Weigh It Shawl and the Yowza Weigh It Shawl 2 for more simple shawl shapes to knit and love.
