Flat Out Fabulous Shawl – Free Knit Pattern

I hope you have your yarn all ready to make this gorgeous squishy shawl, made from Scheepjes River Washed XL! I’m not going to beat around the bush, we’re going to get straight into it.

If you’d prefer a printer/e-reader version, you can purchase it for a small fee on Ravelry.  Extra bonus: you’ll be supporting an indie designer!

What You’ll Need

Colour A: 3 skeins of Scheepjes River Washed XL in 982 Steenbras
Colour B: 4 skeins of Scheepjes River Washed XL in 989 Yarra
7mm circular (80cm) needles
Blocking mats (or a spare bed) and pins
Tapestry needle to weave in the ends

Measurements

190 (longest side) x 105 (shortest side) cm

Tension

14 stitches X 22 rows in pattern unblocked Although tension isn’t crucial, if you knit loosely you may not have enough yarn to match the repeats and pattern

Abbreviations

CA (CB) colour A (B)
Rs right side
Ws wrong side
K knit
Kfb knit front back (increase)
K2tog knit 2 together (decrease)
YO yarn over
Slwyif slip one stitch, purl-wise with the yarn in front

Notes

This is a beginner friendly pattern, worked back and forth in rows, increasing at one side only. The shawl will become a large triangle.
Repeat instructions between brackets […] the instructed amount of times.
When alternating colours, carry the yarn up the side of the work. Make sure the non-working yarn is in front when slipping the working yarn onto the needle.
