Easy Cranberry Shawl

$2.50 USD

This project is perfect for a novice shawl knitter because it is predominantly garter stitch and will not require much blocking to keep the fabric flat and even. The mirrored, plaited cables on the spine keep the shawl interesting and add a unique touch to the simple, ridged fabric.

This pattern is available for FREE on my blog here.

The free version is supported by advertising on my website. The downloadable pdf for sale on KnitCrate includes includes the full pattern in one printable file without advertisements.
