Hometown Shawls pattern #1 - in tribute to the communities that have shaped my family.
Enjoy making this simple boomerang shawl your own. Mix and match the body and edging yarn to suit your taste. Adjust the size and the spacing of the garter and mesh sections in the body according to your whim. It’s easy to knit and easy to customize.
The shawl is worked starting at one point of the triangle, increasing to the edge. On each row, you create a stitch that rests on the cable of the needle until it is time to add the edging, which is knitted on after the body is complete. (No long cast on or bind off to worry about, and no picking up stitches for the edging, either!)
Simmesport is a small town in Avoyelles Parish, LA where my father was born.
