Radiate Shawl

Please select all options.

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This top-down shawl is an easy garter stitch semi-circle designed to showcase beautiful colors. I-cord edges frame the shawl while yarn overs form the smooth shape. The yarn overs increase in size as the rows get longer for a radiating effect.

    Three skeins of fingering weight yarn like Lola Bean’s hand-dyed merino wool will create the shawl or you can knit a multi-color version with colorful stripes. Enjoy the simple elegance of this very wearable shawl shape.
