There’s nothing better than a great big squishy garter stitch shawl to wrap yourself up in on a cool day. This triangular shawl starts with just a few stitches and is worked sideways with a centred double decrease stitch creating a sideways ‘spine’ effect. The colour changes keep it interesting and the garter stitch knitting is simple and soothing. The pattern is written for Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply but you can choose three colours of any sock or fingering weight yarn to make it your own. It is also shown here in Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles (grey/black/off-white).
Pattern includes list of abbreviations, diagram, and written instructions.
