Thursday Afternoon Shawl

Who says shawls have to be lacy and delicate? Ribbing makes a fantastic shawl fabric – a casual, everyday piece that works with any style. The ribbing lies on the bias, and makes the fabric curl nicely around your neck and stay in place.

A simple pattern stitch, an easy-to-understand-and-memorize repeat, and a “work until you run out of yarn” construction make this an ideal TV or travel knit.

The slightly unusual shaping results in an asymmetrical, shallow triangle. The shallowness of the triangle gives it more of a casual scarf-feel, rather than formal shawl. And the geometry works brilliantly: if you center the point on your back, the long end wraps around you, and the two ends hang at the same level.

Knit until it’s the size you want, or you run out of yarn.
