Little shawlettes in garter stitch are just great: They look pretty in a colorful yarn a joy to wear – and the knitting is just a breeze. They are perfect for beginning knitters because they offer great results without being complicated. This one is called “Easy”, because it is exactly that: So very simple to knit, but the biased construction and change of knitting direction really lets the long color changes shine.
You start in one corner and knit a long triangle until 50% of your yarn is used up. Then you change the direction of knitting, make another triangle (no sewing involved!) and bind off.
The yarn I used is a Zauberball by Schoppel, colorway “Oktoberfest” – I love this yarn for socks, and I have used it for my favorite design “Ecken und Kanten”. I just love to knit until the next color shows up!
This pattern is not available as a download, but in print in the German beginning knitter’s magazine “Sabrina Special – Einfach Stricken.” The English version will be available sometime in the future, please be patient and watch this space!
