Calypso Shawl - Free Pattern!
Here is a free shawl pattern for you! This is super easy and pretty quick to knit up. I wanted a shawl that wasn't just another triangle, or shaped in the usual way. I had fun with shaping on this, and absolutely love how it turned out.
I used some of my Shimmer yarn, but you can use any fingering weight yarn you like. (The color I used has sold out, but I do have a few other colors available in this yarn if you would like to use the same yarn!) This is knit in garter stitch, so even a beginner can do this.
I used yarn overs as my increases, but you can use any increase you like. The yarn overs at the beginning of the rows are for increasing, and you won't even see them once the shawl has been blocked. If you will be using another increase, I would knit the first stitch, then work the increase - kfb just as an example.
I wanted to use up as much yarn as possible, without ending up having too little to finish my bind off, so my last increase section is significantly smaller than the others. You can stop and bind off before the last increase section, or you can even continue on if you want the shawl to be bigger.
This is available as a FREE Ravelry download. Hope you have fun making and wearing this shawl.
