Asymetrical Shawl – Free Knitting Pattern Review
I’ve been in a shawl-knitting mood lately. Maybe because I need something simple to make at night while watching tv. Certainly some shawls are complicated, but not this one! Once you get going it is a simple 2 row repeat. One row you’ll be increasing only on one side, and the other row you’ll be increasing at both ends and in the 2 stitches on both side of the stitch marker. This makes for one side being slightly longer, thus the asymmetrical look. It really is the perfect shawl to knit in front of the tv. Use your different colored stitch markers thoughtfully so you know if you are on an increase only once row, or an increase throughought row.
The pattern calls for 2 balls of Patons Glam Stripes yarn, but At first, I was having a tough time finding any. The stores were out, and anything I found online was way overpriced. So, I substituted with Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball. One ball made a perfectly sized shawl.
After I was about halfway through my first shawl, I found some Patons Glam Stripes yarn at Ocean State Job lot on clearance, I was so excited! So, naturally I had to make another shawl. Why not, right? With two balls of the Patons Glam Stripes and size 8 circular needles (chiaogoo bamboo), the shawl came out to about 46” across and 16” from top down to the tip.
