This is one for the knitters!
Go do some stash diving and take out 100g of the finest and best sock yarn you have. Why? Because you are worth it, and you deserve it. If this doesn’t make sense to you, read this blog before you continue.
If you want to make a shawl, you will need 200-300 gram depending on the size you want. Simply continue until you have the desired size before you cast off.
- 100 g fingering (200-300 g if you want to make a shawl)
- 4 mm circular needles
- 5.5 mm circular needles
- inc – increase
- k – knit
- kfb – knit into the front and the back of the next stitch (increase)
- k2tog – knit the next two stitches together
- p – purl
- rs – right side
- slk – slip the next stitch knit-wise
- st(s) – stitch(es)
- yo – yarn over
- ws – wrong side
Using the 4mm needles, cast on 12 sts using any cast on method. Continue to knit with the same needles.
Row 1 (ws): kfb, (yo, k1) x8 times, kfb, k1, p1 (22 sts)
Row 2 (rs) and every alternate row: slk1, knit to end
Row 3: kfb, (yo, k2tog) x8 times, kfb, k1, k2tog, p1 (23 sts)
Row 4: as row 2.
Row 5: kfb, (yo, k2tog) x8 times, kfb, k till 3 sts remain, k2tog, p1 (1 st inc)
Repeat rows 4-5 until you only have enough yarn to cast off. Use a 5.5mm needle to ensure a loose cast off.
