This project feels like it’s channeling grannies, but grannies from when they were young and chic and wearing the latest fashions. The beauty of this pattern is that it is very customizable; it can be knit with any weight of yarn and is finished when you run out of that yarn. At the smaller end of the spectrum, you can create a great kerchief with one skein of wool, but you could keep knitting this until you have a large shawl/wrap. The shawl is pictured made in both a skein of DK wool and a skein of bulky wool to give you an idea of what you’ll get based on weight and amount.
- DK weight: The Uncommon Thread BFL Light DK in col. Lust, 225m/100g
- Bulky weight: Cascade Eco + in col. 8401, 437 m / 250 g
Use a 36” circular needle in the size appropriate for the wool you’re using (generally what is listed on the information for your specific yarn).
It’s not necessary to check gauge for this project. You will want to be working at approximately the gauge listed for your yarn.
Dimensions will vary according to yarn used. To give you a general idea, the smaller shawl worked in 225 m of DK measures 31” along longest (increase) edge and 19” across at widest point; The 437 m of bulky yarn yielded a shawl that measures 66” x 34”.
