Ever buy a gradient yarn or a mini-skein pack and not know what to do with it? Did you find a great skein of variegated sock yarn but you’re not quite sure if it will make a good shawl? If you’re anything like me, then you definitely have.

Inspired by a great mini-skein pack that I just couldn’t resist, Pomeroy Shawl is a simple, garter stitch, asymmetrical shawl. The lower edge has a crochet chain bind off, just for something a little fancy. Even though the pattern calls for 500-550 yards of fingering weight yarn, it’s easy to adjust the pattern for any yardage, and you don’t have to use a mini-skein pack. Just knit!

The pattern has been test knit by my fantastic test knitters and professionally tech edited by Corrina Ferguson.
