Free shawl knitting pattern

Snuggle up and knit our free shawl knitting pattern – all you need is one ball of yarn to make this cosy project! Wrap it round your throat like a scarf or drape it over your shoulders in the traditional way

Free triangle shawl knitting pattern

One ball, one lovely warm shawl! If you like your yarn to go that little bit further, you can’t beat a shawl. However, if the thought of tackling a complex lace pattern in a fine yarn puts you off knitting shawls, try this one by Kirstie McLeod, which uses classic construction techniques, but is worked in DK yarn for an easier knit and a thicker, warmer garment at the end.

I chose Riot DK because it’s designed to knit up into stripes, and I loved the way it looked as the knitting grew
