I have a goal for this year to make three light-weight knitted shawls as Xmas gifts for my mom, grandma, and aunt. I just finished shawl number one (which also happens to be my first ever knitted shawl)!
I used the Step It Up shawl pattern because it seemed easy enough for a first timer and came with a video (bonus!). And it was super easy - just knit stitch and yarn overs. Maybe a little too easy. I need a little bit of a challenge for the next one (famous last words).
The yarn is Malabrigo Sock in Primavera. I just love the colors. I used size 3 circular needles.
It’s 55 inches long on the straight edge, which is still 10 inches shorter than the pattern called for, but I was running dangerously low on yarn, so I called it quits at 55. I think it’s sufficient.
Here’s my tiny ball of leftover yarn!
One down…two to go!
