- Knitting pattern for simple summer shawl
- Photo tutorial and line-by-line stitch counts included
- Suitable for advanced beginners
Have a few skeins of fingering-weight yarn that need something to do this summer? Bring two or a few colors together to play in Summer Camp, an easy-to-memorize and easy-to-modify shawl that makes an effortless, low-key knit. It’s perfect for pairing a crazy variegated or a speckled colorway with a coordinating solid, or for using leftovers or a gradient set. The shawl is worked sideways with a knitted-on edging, and the simple instructions mean you can knit one up from wherever your summer days take you.
Resizing is easy - just add stripes! (The final scallop directions will work as written as long as you increase by full stripes.)
If you like having a row-by-row stitch count, there is a separate pdf available to download.
Finished measurements: approximately 173 cm wide and 35.5 cm deep
Gauge: 22 stitches to 10 cm of unblocked garter stitch
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
