Tali Shawl is a one-skein wonder. It is cute, quick, easy, and completely reversible! Perfect as a present!

The pattern is written for the fingering weight, but you can use any thicker yarn, sport, DK, or worsted weight ( you might need a second skein).

The shawl is a triangular shape, knitted sideways. The instructions are fully written. The exact gauge is not crucial for this project. It will depend on the fiber content of your yarn and how aggressively you block the finished shawl. Pick a needle size that creates a soft, drapey fabric that has some stitch definition. It might be very different from recommended.

YARN: 1 skein of any fingering weight yarn (approx. 390-460 yrds /100g)

NEEDLES: US 5 (3.75 mm)

NOTIONS: Darning needle, digital scales.

GAUGE: 20-22 sts x 30-32 rows = 4” in garter stitch after wet blocking
