My husband bought me some beautiful yarn for me awhile back. I tried making a shawl from knitty.com but the yarn I have was so fuzzy the drop stitch on the edges didn't work.
So I decided to figure out a shawl pattern myself. I searched thru craftster and found someone said you could make a shawl my simply increasing 1 stitch on each end. I cast on 10 stitches, increased 1 stitch on both ends on the knit rows and knit it up in stockinette stitch. I stopped when it looked wide enough and added fringe for decoration. I used size 10 needles to make it really airy.
I wanted a simple pattern to showcase the yarn because it's absolutely beautiful. The yarn is handpainted mohair and was bought off ebay. I think the brand was Over the Rainbow Yarns but I've had this yarn for a few years and am not 100% sure of that.
Here's the kitty, approving of my work.
