Hi! Do you love small shawls that you can use as a scarf? My favorite are crescent shaped that have a garter or stockinette top and a decorative border. Would you like to join in a MAL? This MAL will run from January 1, 2020 to March 31, 2020.
There is also a Shawl Lover’s Group so we can share our shawl creations all year. Please join us at:
Pattern suggestions from me and other members. Please share your suggestions for your favorite small shawl - knitted or crocheted.

Designs that I have knit and love:
Close to You:
Kris Basta’s “Gallatin Scarf” is a wonderful pattern, and she sells the pattern through Fiberkind’s Marketplace - https://store.fiberkind.com/index.ph…&product_id=43. Though she calls it a scarf, it has a shawlette type of shape and has nice long ends that help it stay around the neck better. It can accommodate any worsted yarn from mildest to wildest. It’s also a really, really fast knit.
The “Reyna Shawl” is free, and also versatile - https://theknittingspace.com/reyna-knitted-lace-shawl/ . It is great for any fingering weight yarn, mild to wild. I made a Reyna with a “what the heck was I thinking when I bought this?!” hot pink/green/brown yarn. Gotta say, it totally worked.
Almost anything by Martina Behm - https://strickmich.frischetexte.de/en/anleitungen/ is wonderful. The “Hitchhiker” is a popular favorite, and “Brickless” is a personal favorite. Most of hers can be worked using several yarn weights, and most work with wild yarns, as well.
