This delightful shawl is created by combining a contemporary shape with an old-fashioned, zig-zag edge (no binding off!). It knits up quickly and is a great use of that one skein of precious sock yarn in your stash.
Blocking is a must for this shawl – it makes it very drapey with nice, sharp points on your applied edge.
This shawl is knit from the tip to the wide end finished with a knitted-on edge in a contrasting colour and using a fingering weight yarn. This shawl has one size (adjustable).
