Last night I finished a new pattern I designed for a birthday present for one of my best girlfriends. It's a big shawl, perfect for the cool fall days in the bay area, and great for curling up on the couch to read with.

I have a feeling I'll be making a bunch of these this year, because they're fast, easy, and knit up with huge needles and only 3 balls of yarn. Can't go wrong there!



Materials:
3 balls Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn, 3 colors (pictured: oatmeal, barley, taupe)
1 set size US 19 ( 15.0 mm) knitting needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)

Gauge for 4"x4":
7 sts by 8 rows

Approximate dimensions:
55" width x 35" length

Gauge and dimension are not critical in this piece, and dimensions can be altered by adding or decreasing stitches and rows to create desired length and width.



Instructions:

Row 1: Starting with Color 1 (C1) and using the long-tail method, cast on 60 sts. Leave C1 to the side.
Row 2: Pick up Color 2 (C2) and k 60 sts. Leave C2 to the side.
Row 3: Pick up Color 3 (C3) and k 60 sts. Leave C3 to the side.
Row 4: Carry up C1, *k1, yo*, repeat * 58 times, k.
Row 5: Carry up C2, *k1, drop 1*, repeat * 58 times, k.
Row 6: Carry up C3, k 60 sts.
Row 7: Carry up C1, k 60 sts.
Row 8: Carry up C2, *k1, yo*, repeat * 58 times, k.
Row 9: Carry up C3, *k1, drop 1*, repeat * 58 times, k.
Row 10: Carry up C1, k 60 sts.
Row 11: Carry up C2, k 60 sts.
Row 12: Carry up C3, *k1, yo*, repeat * 58 times, k..
Row 13: Carry up C1, *k1, drop 1*, repeat * 58 times, k.
Row 14: Carry up C2, k 60 sts.
Row 15: Carry up C3, k 60 sts.
Rows 16 - 60: repeat rows 4-15.
Rows 61 - 75: repeat rows 4-14.
Row 76: Carry up C3, bind off. Weave in ends.

Hope you guys enjoy! If you make one of your own, please post pics, I'd love to see!  I'll post more later when I make others.

Thanks Mizell, I just made the pillows a few weeks ago!  The cat is not attached, but may as well be. Smiley

Update:

Finished another one! 



This one's for my step-niece Alissa for Christmas.  More to come, I've already cast on for the next one for my sister-in-law.

3 more reading shawls completed for holiday presents:




For my mother-in-law Laurie




For my husband's grandma Eleanor



For my sister-in-law Jennifer


All plus my step-niece's shawl

I've got plans for a couple more, too, and eventually at least one for me.  Plus, this pattern was featured as pattern of the day on dailyknitter.com, and I got 1700 hits on that page yesterday!   Hooray!
