Note: Sqoosh is my own hand-dyed yarn which is currently unavailable online…but any skein of precious sock yarn will work as long as it’s soft!

Thanks as always to all my wonderful test knitters!!

The Sillyheart Shawl invites you to add a pop of colour to your style with a bright sawtooth edge and a charming curly tail. The lacework is simple and the knit-on edge is a good opportunity to pick up a new skill!

This design allows you to knit until the shawl is desired length or until you run out of yarn. A contrasting colour is attached and the knit-on edge is worked which means no binding off!

The elongated vortex shape is a great way to maximize your yardage and get the most out of one skein of precious yarn (solid or variegated). The curved shape helps your shawl stay put or you can accessorize with a cute shawl cuff.
