THE STORY
Who doesn’t have myriads of gorgeous, fingering-weight single skeins that they aren’t sure what to do with!? I know I sure do - so I came up with a simple solution to show off the beauty of single skein and keep my hands a-knittin’!

MATERIALS

  • KiwiPop Yarn Snazzy Pop (fingering weight; 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon; 435 yds / 398 m per 3.5 oz / 100g), 1 skein: ‘Midnight Beach’
  • US 6 (4 mm) 32” / 81 cm circular needle
  • Row counter (optional)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Yarn/kitchen scale

FINISHED SIZE
66” / 167.5 cm width along top edge, 14“ / 35.5 cm depth from top edge to bottom point (see schematic)

PROJECT GAUGE
22 sts and 36 rows = 4” / 10 cm over stitch pattern, worked flat, taken after blocking

NOTES

  • This asymmetrical shawl is worked from the top right point, and increases in width along the top edge every WS row.

  • This pattern includes written instructions only.

  • Gauge is not critical for this project - we simply want a single skein to go as far as possible! You will use up all but 5 g of the skein knitting the shawl, reserving the final 5 g for the picot bind off.
