This unique knit shawl features a lacy border, and it begins and ends with only six stitches. Using a simple garter stitch, knit increasing and decreasing rows from one side of the shawl to the other. In between ends, you can send warm wishes to the recipient! This project uses five skeins of worsted weight yarn (approximately one skein equaling 132 yards [121 meters]), a size 8 [5 mm] 36” circular knitting needle, and stitch markers.
The finished knit Sideways Shawl is 66” long x 24” wide [168 cm x 61 cm] at its widest point; approximately 16 stitches = 4” (10 cm) garter stitch. This project is listed at an “intermediate” skill level. This project is from the original publication 5628 – Shawls, Wraps, & Ponchos.
