My new big fat shawl

I just finished my new shawl! I bought 0,2 kg of this gorgeous thick but soft and gentle wool and decided to make a rich and warm shawl. Considering the thickness and the 9 mm needles used for knitting it was finished very fast. It measures 70 × 30 cm.

Material Notes

Perfect wool :)




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual

      Try it, woman! The only things that you need are the needles and wool. And a lil bit of good will ;)

      Now I’m eating myself I haven’t included word “chunky” in the shawl’s name :shame: :)

      Instructions? It is VERY easy. My only problem will be how to explain, because my English in knit-domain is kinda poor :) but I’ll try.

      I used 9 mm needles and very thick-threaded wool. In the beginning, I made 40 loops and started to knit the basic rib stitch – you increase one row and decrease the next one by using this combo:

      K P K P K P K P K P K P
      K P K P K P K P K P K P
      K P K P K P K P K P K P

      K – knit, P – purl.

      After cca 15 lines I used rice knit stitch:

      K P K P K P K P K P K P
      P K P K P K P K P K P K
      K P K P K P K P K P K P

      for a few rows to break the monotony.

      If I haven’t explained this, let me know and I’ll try to get you some links, pics and more :)
