Winter has settled in, and it’s time for a cozy comfort knit, something to snuggle in as snowflakes fall. The finished shawl is bold and modern and sure to banish winter winds! Wove is a beginner-friendly triangular shawl with a dramatic basketweave border. It begins with just two stitches, then knits up in a flash in worsted or aran-weight yarn.
Most of the shawl body is knitted in garter stitch, so it is ideal for knitting with friends or on the road. The occasional textured bands are fun to work and make satisfying milestones along the way. Slipped stitches give the border an eye-catching three-dimensional effect.
Fully written instructions are provided, along with one optional chart.
