My First Knit Shawl Pattern

Updated: Sep 27, 2019



Today's pattern is a the My First Knit Shawl! Really, it is the first published knit shawl. Here's the thing, I have issues with knitting larger projects with small needles. They tend to make their way into the WIP pile while I move onto another design. Also, I never wore shawls. So I wanted to start out with a simple, almost mindless knitting design. I added a decorative panel in the middle so it's not tooooo boring ;)
