I absolutely love this shawl! It's big and warm, and has fun fringe. As the title says, it's a simple drop stitch pattern.

That is gorgeous!  I love the drop stitch pattern.

What kind of yarn is that?  The red is spectacular:)

Thanks Rottie Mom! I used Lionbrand Homespun. I like this color too. It has little flecks of white throughout which make it interesting to look at.

Trinabrielle,

I love this shawl and have been looking for something like this.  Did you use a pattern or could tell me where you found one?

Thanks,

Karen

Thanks everyone!

teelee - I used just under 2 balls.

knittygrrl - Unfortunately, I knit this before I started writing down all my patterns. I just counted my fringe though, and I have 40 per side, which makes me pretty confident that I followed this pattern. I'm unsure of what size needles I used though...

(Scroll down the page to find the shawl pattern.)

A word of advice if anybody makes fringe with homespun. The ends tend to fray easily. To stop this, I tied a little knot at the end of each piece of fringe. It's functional and it adds a little something to the fringe!

trinabrielle, it's gorgeous.  I never would have thought that a shawl would look so great knit up in Homespun yarn.  The colour is stunning.  Thanks for the hint about knotting the ends of the fringe.  I've got a 50% off coupon for Michaels so I guess I know what I'm getting with that this week.
