Hello Noble Knitters! It's Nancy Queen and I'm back again from NobleKnits.com to tell you about the Zaubershawl. This gorgeous shawl is available as a free pattern on our blog. I'll show you...you can just download the free PDF pattern - there's more details on our blog.
I just wanted to tell you a little bit about what makes this shawl so interesting and fun to knit. It's definitely a beginner project. When you knit a traditional triangle shawl, you tend to increase to the center point, and then decrease down to the other end.
With this shawl, you start at one end with just three stitches. You knit back and forth (in garter stitch) and increase on just one side. So, what happens is, your rows get wider and wider and wider until you have these really long rows. Then you bind off and that increase side becomes the top of your shawl. The technique is amazing and it turns into this gorgeous diagonal shawl.
Again, it's a free pattern. It's called the Zaubershawl at NobleKnits.com.
