Woven Checks Shawl by Stephen West (Digital Pattern)

$8.00 USD

This pattern is a digital pattern that will be emailed to you from Ravelry. Please leave your Ravelry name in the “instructions to seller” portion of your shopping cart before proceeding to check out. 😊

Select one solid or semi-solid main color and one self-striping contrast color to knit this sideways triangle shawl. Begin at the small tip of the shawl and work increases toward the border as you only work with one color at a time. Stripes and slip stitches form the woven checks motif, creating the illusion of the self-striping yarn weaving in and out of the garter ridges. I-cord edges frame the large shawl shape. You can easily customize the size by knitting more pattern repeats for a large shawl or simply bind off early for a smaller shawl size. This pattern includes videos linked throughout the instructions to help you cast on and bind off, making this project ideal for beginner shawl knitting.

Gauge is not crucial for this project as long as you achieve a fabric that feels good to you. If you want to swatch, I recommend casting on the shawl and knitting the first pattern repeats because the project begins small at the corner tip.
