Smile Shawlette to knit

Smile Shawlette is so easy it will make you smile. It’s a top down, garter stitch (no purl!), half circle shawl.

You may remember seeing pictures of some of these I knit as Christmas gifts last year. Those were knit in synthetic yarns and were not blocked. I've added a new version to the pattern that is knit in wool and blocked. The blocked version also includes a simple pointy border. You must block the shawl to get the points!

The pattern contains written directions for these shawls:

1) A blocked version in light fingering weight wool or even a heavier laceweight yarn (375-400 yards) on size 7 needles. It has a pointy border and must be blocked! Blocked size: 51" along the top x 23" long.

2) An unblocked smaller version in Red Heart Shimmer (280 yards) on size 8 needles (pink) that was 32" x 14" and,

3) An unblocked version in Patons Lace (498 yards) on size 6 needles (black/white) that was 40" x 16".

4) General instructions that let you make any size shawl you want with whatever yarn and needles you choose. Block or don't block depending on the yarn you use and the size shawl you want.

These make fun and easy gifts!

The 3 page pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.
