This shawl FLEW off the needles! I don’t knit with a ton of bulky yarn, but this Malabrigo Mecha really spoke to me. There are some seriously awesome colours. I knit this one up in just a few days, and it is so soft and cozy. Too bad I didn’t have it done last weekend when I was actually waiting outside in the freezing cold for brunch! I’m really happy with how the photos turned out, too.
The blurb: Looking for a quick project to keep you warm this winter? This super cozy shawl works up so quickly in bulky yarn, you’ll hardly believe it! Winter Brunch is a simple top- down elongated triangle with increases worked at the edges every row for a nice shape that’ll sit around your shoulders over or under your coat. The lattice edging is easy to knit with fun large lace holes. I recommend working the simple two stitch cable crosses without a cable needle – it’s a great way to learn.
The shawl begins at the back neck in stockinette, with increases at the edges every row (and the center every RS row). The directions for the lattice edging are given in both chart and row-by-row form. It’s a perfect new project for a snowy weekend!
