Red Robin Shawl was my very first Knitvent design!

This cheery, light shawl will brighten up the bleakest months of the year, like the warbling notes of its namesake.

The main body of the shawl is worked in a super speedy stockinette stitch and the textured border is so straightforward it won’t slow you down much. The elongated triangular shape is emphasised with bouncy tassels at the points.

It can be made with one skein of sock yarn and all sections of the shawl can easily be adjusted to the amount of yarn you have.

If knit to gauge - the shawl measures approximately 127cm (50”) “wingspan” and
43cm (17”) neck edge to middle point.

A huge thank you to Nunoidia for test knitting.
