Materials

Various oddments from your stash and needles to suit. You can use absolutely anything from the finest linen to the glitziest, fuzziest novelty yarn imaginable!

I used 550gms dk weight wools and cottons (approximately 1100m/ 1210 yards) and 4mm needles for a 5 ft wide shawl with fringe.

Gauge

Any gauge to suit your yarn.

Abbreviations

K = knit
yo = yarn over

Repeat rows 57 - 92, adding 2 more repeats of the section between the square brackets each time you repeat the 36 rows.

For example, the next row will be:

K1, yo, *[(k2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times] 5 times**, (k1, yo) twice, k1, repeat from * to ** once, yo, k1

Continue knitting until your shawl measures:

12 - 16 inches wide for a head scarf
4 ft wide for a shoulder shawl or
The recipient's height for a full size shawl. For example, this shawl is for my daughter who is 5ft tall so I made her shawl 5ft wide across the top.

Finishing

Darn in all loose ends.

Work a row of double crochet (US single crochet) into the yarn over eyelets across the top using a crochet hook 2 sizes larger than the needles you used to knit your shawl (to compensate for the extra length).

Add a fringe if desired.

For a head scarf, make a twisted cord 30 - 34 inches long and thread it through the eyelets across the top of the scarf.
