This super simple knit shawl is exactly that – simple! It’s great for a first big project because the only stitches used are knit, purl, and yarn over. So, if you can make those and cast on and bind off, you’re set. This shawl is also a great way to use small amounts of coordinating yarn. I used size 2 (sport weight) yarn, but you can use another weight if that’s what you have. Make yours whatever size you want, just bind off when you’re happy.

Weave in all ends then steam block.

Tassels – make 3

  • Cut 30 strands 10” long of each Color then pile them in a bundle. I used a large Rya-Tie tool from Bucilla.
  • Cut one strand of either Color 15” long then tie it tightly around the center of the bundle.
    Do not cut, use this to attach the tassel to the scarf when the tassel is done.
  • Fold bundle in half.
  • Cut one 20” strand of either color then use it to wrap the tassel top.
  • Attach one tassel to each of the 3 points of the scarf.
