Shawl Pattern

Please note – Make the 3 tassels before you start the shawl, so you don’t run out of yarn later on.

Worked flat knitting back and forth on two needles:

Set up

  • CO 5 sts.
  • Row 1(WS): K1, YO, K1, YO, PM, K1, PM, YO, K1, YO, K1. (9 sts)

Start working the pattern repeat as follows:

Garter Stitch Rows

  • Row 1 (RS): K1, YO, K to marker, YO, SM, K1, SM, YO, K to last st, YO, K1.
  • Row 2: Knit to the end of the row.
  • Rep rows 1 and 2 twice more. (6 rows garter st worked in total).

*Tip – Place a closed stitch marker on the right side of the work, so you know which side is the RS, this is the side you are making the increases on.

Yarn Over Rows

  • Row 1 (RS): K1, YO, K1, *YO, K2tog – rep from * to marker, YO, SM, K1, SM, *YO, K2tog – rep from * to the last 2 sts, YO, K1, YO, K1.
  • Row 2: Knit to the end of the row.

Rep the 6 garter stitch rows and the 2 yarn over rows until your shawl measures 74 inches in width tip to tip (or you run out of yarn).

Further Notes

You can make it smaller or larger depending on your preferences, you can keep repeating the pattern rows until you get your desired size.

If you make it smaller you may need less yarn and larger you will need more yarn.

Finishing and Blocking

You may wish to block your shawl, you can do that as follows:

Make sure all ends are woven in using a tapestry needle or method of choice.

Gently block by filling a sink or water basin with lukewarm water, add a small amount of rinse less wool wash.

Place the items in the water and gently massage out any air bubbles.

Drain water, gently squeezing out any excess water from the item, then roll in a towel, and stomp on the towel roll to remove any more excess water.

Lay the item out on a towel to approx. finished wingspan measurements and allow to dry completely.
