A very easy rectangular shawl. Make it in whatever size suits you. The stitch pattern is a 1 row repeat, but it's very open and fancy looking. I love the way it drapes!
I love this stitch so much, I'll have to try it in a baby blanket or poncho next!
- About 300 metres of worsted or dk weight yarn - I used 2 balls of Bernat Satin (labelled as "worsted" even though gauge states 18 sts per 4 inches)
- Pair of single pointed needles, or a circular, 8.00 mm or thereabouts (not crucial as long as resulting fabric looks nice)
- Cast on 41 sts (other other odd number if you prefer).
- K1, *yo, k2tog* to end, turn.
- Repeat this row for pattern.
- The finished size is about 19 by 64 inches (50 by 160 cm).
- I didn't feel a fringe was needed, and Satin is so slippery, I didn't think it would be a good thing to try. If you decide to add fringe, be sure to keep some yarn in reserve and make the shawl slightly shorter or narrower, or else have extra yarn on hand.
- Be sure to give your hands a break once in a while, working with large needles can be tiring.
