This simple shawl is from the cover of Knitscene Fall 2017. With a garter stitch border and a grid pattern adorning most of this shawl, this is easy to memorize and complete. This fingering weight shawl can also double as a scarf. The triangle shaping occurs with a yarnover increase at the beginning of right-side rows and an ssk decrease at the beginning and a yarnover increase at the end of wrong-side rows.
Kit includes Knitscene Fall 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn. PRE-ORDER available on all yarns; please allow at least 5 business days for shipping to your location.
