(Joining in with Ginny this week for the Yarn Along because knitting and reading are two of my favorite things to do.)
On our way home from Maine, I started this very simple shawl. I have always wanted to knit a shawl for myself. After trying several too complicated for me patterns, (because I can't keep count when a child needs me or I have to get up and get the bread out of the oven...) I decided on this very simple pattern.
For this shawl I am using DK weight wool/mohair from Peace Fleece in Sea Moss on size 6 needles.
The pattern is as follows:
Row 1: CO 1 stitch
Row 2: kfbf (3 sts)
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: K1, Kfbf, K1 (5 sts)
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: K1, Kfb, K to last 2 sts, Kfb, K1
Repeat rows 5 and 6 until you have 11 stitches on your needle
Now for the rest of the shawl
K5 YO, Knit to the end.
I am still reading Lzarge Family Logistics and the second book in the Anne of Green Gables series.
Looking forward to seeing what you are working on and reading.
