All your knitting friends are making clever shawl-type things…but you’re just not so sure how to get started.
You don’t want to knit super long rows, picking up stitches terrifies you…never mind working tricky lace!
Learner is here to help you out; a cleverly constructed shawlette, knit in 2 directions, but with no picking up stitches or working tricky lace.

Learner is shallow shawlette, constructed sideways in 2 directions, without having to pick up stitches. You will start at one end of the shawlette and create a garter stitch trapezoid.
Once the trapezoid is complete, a line of stitches sits waiting along one edge for you to simply slide your needle into, and knit your airy edging down.
