This is a triangular shaped shawl, worked in one piece, from the top down. Casting on requires using the garter tab cast on method which I have provided a tutorial link to.

Instructions for this shawl are provided in both written and charted format. The chart is very easy to read and ideal for knitters who haven’t followed a chart before.

This shawl is so easy to knit that you could say that it’s a pure skoosh! This translates as ‘something very easy’ for those not fluent in Scottish dialect.
The design for this shawl was inspired by a few enquiries I’ve had from fellow knitters, asking which of my shawl patterns was easiest for someone new to shawls. I think it’s important to understand the shape and construction of these triangular shawls and sometimes patterns, charts and construction can leave new shawl knitters feeling slightly confused.
So, I’m hoping to help knitters understand just how triangular shawls develop with this very simple yet elegant shawl pattern.
