This nice shawl is designed as a perfect holiday project. It often happens that you are on vacation and you see a couple of nice skein of yarn.
You want to start knitting immediately? You don’t want to think about yarn consumption and calculations? Just sit down at the beach or on the balcony of your hotel / apartment and start knitting.
No need for packing a calculator or a kitchen scale in your trunk! :-)
Nimrodel is a simply constructed shawl which is worked bottom-up. Its shape is achieved by regularly increases at the sides.
The most beautiful thing is that you can knit the shawl in every yarn, you don’t need to weight yarn or note any yarn consumption. You can concentrate on the charts (pattern repeats), you don’t need any skills except of yarn overs and knitting stitches together. After a little while you will be able to knit mindlessly till the yarn is used up.
The provisional cast-on may be new for you but it is explained in this pattern.
Finishing the bottom lace also requires no calculations. This will also be explained in the pattern.
