The Interesting Bits Shawl


If you've ever looked at a top-down triangular shawl and thought, "I like it -- but it's going to take forever to get to the interesting bits," then this is the shawl for you. It has a conventional top-down option, but there's also a scarf version that skips all the lead-up and begins right where the slip-stitch pattern is. So whether you're in the mood for some (fairly) mindless knitting first, or just want to skip to the interesting bits, this one's for you! Please note this pattern contains charts. Designer Lisa R. Myers Finished Size Shawl: About 65” wide along upper edge, and 32” long from center of upper edge to lower point, after blocking Gauge 22 sts and 40 rows = 4” / 10 cm in pattern from Belted Stripes chart, blocked.
