On the Right Shawl

I know I said I was going to talk about the Noro Accessories book next, but I figured I would skip ahead to a new shawl pattern first.  After all, here Christmas is rapidly approaching, and I know there are those of you out there still hoping to whip out a handknit gift or two!

So, I’d like to give you one more option for a quick knit gift that will be well-received.  The On the Right Shawl.

This shawl is a 2-color shawl worked up in garter stitch — ideal for using up all those skeins of fingering weight wool we have sitting in our stashes.  I used Alchemy Juniper for my shawl in a dark navy and a rich gold.  I have a few more color combos set aside for future projects.

The pattern is written up for 3 sizes — a small (kerchief-style) scarf, the shawlette as shown, and a true full-size triangular shawl.  It is knit in all garter stitch using a modular technique.  Everything is joined as you go.  No sewing to be done!

I really enjoyed this project.  So much so that I have a few variations in mind that you will be seeing some time in the not too distant future.  I hope you all enjoy it, too.

P.S.  Thanks for the awesome modeling, Dani!
