Yowza Weigh It Shawl 4
I have finished the fourth shawl in the Yowza Weigh It Shawl series. Yowza Weight It Shawl 4 is here! The sample is knit in Yowza in the Perfectly Wreckless colorway.
The idea behind this continued study of shawl shapes is that you cast on using 8 ounces of a light worsted weight yarn (like the Miss Babs Yowza which is 560 yards) and you never count a single stitch! You keep track of what to do by weighing your yarn in one or two key places along the way. The shawls are designed to be simple to knit and to be very wearable when they are finished.
The Yowza Weigh It Shawl 4 has an asymmetrical extended triangle shape. It is knit side to side and the entire shawl is worked in garter stitch including the applied edging. There is not a single purl stitch to be found. This shawl is incredibly simple to knit with a 2 row repeat. You will instantly have it memorized.
All of the Yowza Weigh It Shawls 1-4 are based on the use of one skein of the very popular Yowza from Miss Babs. Other yarns could be substituted and would work fine. All of the shawls are beginner friendly and simple, mostly all knit in garter stitch, and they provide an excellent exploration of a variety of popular shawl shapes in a very easy to understand way.
