Charra is a large triangular shawl that you won’t be able to resist snuggling into to keep you warm in the winter months.
This pattern begins with a simple lace panel and then moves into a large section of my favourite unique garter striping method, which creates a squishy texture. In this section you begin with a large number of stitches, decreasing as you move forward. The last section is made up of a broken rib stitch with the option of two different finishes to the end of the shawl.
Charra is a fun knit with lots of soothing garter work. Ideal for advanced beginners.

I hope you enjoy this knit as much as I enjoyed designing it. This was one design I couldn’t wait to wear! And named after my first born; who I couldn’t wait to meet 10 years ago!
Happy knitting!
