  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This asymmetrical shawl is knit top-down with fingering weight yarn. Twisted stitches slant in one section of the shawl with simple stockinette stitch throughout the rest of the fabric. Choose two skeins of fingering weight yarn in one color to knit the small size or knit the large size with three skeins of yarn. I-cord edges frame the shawl for a crisp clean look. This beginner friendly shawl includes video links throughout the pattern to help you cast on and work the the I-cord bind off.
