Here is your chance to love the items, and just buy it already finished.

Quick and Easy Shawl

Quick and Easy Shawl

The beauty of this one lies in the long stripes that this yarn produces.  The start of the shawl has the stripes close together and as you progress they get fatter and wider.  Garter stitch makes this a beginner pattern!
 Yarn:  Lion Brand Scarfie.  2 balls of Denim / Navy.  (or chunky equivalent 625 yards, or 560 meters)

Gauge: 12 - 14 sts = 4 inches in garter stitch on 6mm (US 10) needles.  (not terribly important to hit this gauge)

Needles:  6mm or US 10, long circular needles (not knit in round, but best to hold that many stitches.


Cast on loosely, 140 stitches.
Row 1:  Knit 2 sts, knit 2 together, knit to end of row.
Row 2:  Knit to end of row.
Repeat row 1 and 2 until you have one stitch left, and fasten off.

 Wear it behind your back, or wrap it from the front for a huge lovely cowl!
