This cozy worsted–weight shawl is knit in a basket-weave stitch with several size and color options. It is worked top-down from the center outward in a shallow V.

Skills required: increasing by knitting into the front and the back of a stitch, backwards-loop cast-on, slipping stitches

Sizes: small (152.5 cm across and 54 cm deep after blocking) and large (183 cm across and 61 cm deep after blocking)

Gauge: 17 stitches to 10 cm of garter basket-weave stitch. Gauge is not critical but will affect the finished size and the meterage required

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
