Please Join Me is an asymmetrical, triangular shawl consisting of a smidge of garter stitch and a picot stripe. Only one color is worked per row.

Marian asked me for a creative way to use her Bunch of Ettes (individual one-of-a-kind, Scrumptious HT mini-skeins totaling 400 yards) and I wanted to design a shawl that showed off the one-of-a-kind combination of these “Ettes”. I also wanted a pattern that would work just as well using two 400-yard fingering weight skeins. Marian’s Ettes are sure to provide a playful palette and endless one-of-a-kind possibilities. You can find the kits she put together for this shawl using her Ettes here or if you prefer to use two 400-yard skeins, you can find endless possibilities here.
