Knitting and Designing with Favorite Shawl Shapes

Michele Lee Bernstein

Friday PM

Shawls and shawlettes are a great way to show off one or two skeins of very special yarn. How are these shapes constructed? We’ll knit through mini versions of my favorite shapes: Top down triangle, asymmetric triangle, top down elongated crescent, and sideways crescent. Learn these shapes and make up your own shawl!

Skill level: Intermediate.

Material Fee: $2 for handout

Shawl Shapes

50g/150 yards smooth, light colored sport or DK weight yarn, and straight or 24” circular needles in the appropriate size for your yarn. (It will be easier to learn with a thicker yarn and a slightly longer needle tip.)

Homework: None
