Bohemian Shawl


This triangle shawl is so easy and fun to make – you may want to make a few of them! It knits up quickly and has a beautiful drape when it’s blocked. It’s a great way to explore creative colour combos.

Made with a few easy stitches, this shawl is almost like a sampler. Some techniques include double moss stitch, eyelets, garter stitch and ribbing.

This shawl is knit from the middle of the neck with increases fanning outwards. It is knit in one piece with two balls of fingering weight yarn.

Note: You can use any two balls of 100 g of sock yarn – if your yardage isn’t very generous, the depth of the shawl can easily be adjusted.
