The Dishcloth Shawl

Any size you like!


Any yarn and needles to suit. The amount of yarn needed will depend on your finished size and the yarn used.

I used approximately 500gms of handspun, hand dyed, 4 ply bulky merino and 6.5mm needles to make a shawl to fit my 8 year old daughter.


Cast on one stitch.

1st row: K1, YO, K1 into the same stitch (3 stitches)

Every row from now on: K1, YO, K to end of row.

Repeat the last row until your shawl is big enough.


Block, darn in all loose ends and add a fringe if you want to! I ran out of yarn, so I didn’t 🙂
