Chroma Worsted Shawl

Well I wanted to make a shawl. An EASY shawl. So I searched You Tube (gotta love You Tube) and found how-to’s for a simple triangular shawl.

That was easy. I followed the instructions and knitted the triangular part with one ball of yarn. I just kept knitting until I ran out of yarn. Then I decided to add a crocheted edge. Don’t ask me for the pattern, because I made it up as I went along. I used what fit the shawl, improvising and setting my mouth right to get it to work.

Looking at it, I thought well it’s large enough for a scarf. So I had to block it to stretch the yarn and make it at least resemble a shawl. That was a little tricky. I used lace blocking wires and stretched that sucker tight. Then I let it sit until it dried. I’m pretty happy with the results.

BTW, I used Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in New England colorway.

  1. So lovely. This will be perfect for the movies for me.. They keep it like an ice locker and I’m always lugging a jacket inside and covering up like a blanket. I’ll think of this next time I’m watching Spiderman.
