This is a shawl that is designed to make the most of that perfect skein of sockweight yarn that’s just too good to be hidden inside your shoes.
Knit from end to end this shawl starts and ends with just 2 stitches -
no tedious, never ending bind offs here.
You work the increase section until you have 50% of your yarn remaining and then it’s the downhill decreases all the way to the end.
K.I.S.S is a fabulous abbreviation for Keep It Simple Stupid and I have appropriated it here for the Keep It Simple Shawl.
The lace border adds a bit of fun and interest and as knit as you go, so once you have cast off the final two stitches you can fling it on with minimal finishing.
Two files are included in this download. One is the original stocking stitch version and the second is exactly the same but in garter stitch.
