Willow Shawl- easy - aran/worsted


    Willow is a pretty, lacy shawl pattern, just right as a warm over-coat scarf on a Winter’s walk or a cosy shawl on a cool Summer’s eve.

    Although this is knitted in the same way as an asymmetrical shawl, the end result is virtually a triangle, with the increase edge running along the top.

    An easy/intermediate knit as the only skills you need are knit, purl, yarn forward and yarn over – (the last 2 are explained with photos in a glossary) - so an advanced beginner should cope well.

    Instructions are in English, with British/American terms. It is knitted on a circular needle, working back and forth, to accommodate the number of sts. Yarn recommendations are given, but any chunky/bulky yarn should work well. There is a front cover that can be omitted if printing.

    Just right for that outdoors walk!
