Free and easy shawl pattern

Yesterday, knitnscribble posted an article with two summer shawlette patterns found in my wanderings, both beautiful shawls, and perfect for summertime and warmer weather's cool nights. A friend on Facebook asked if there was an easier free pattern that still had a little ruffle flirty edge to it, which reminded me of  "Mara" by Madelinetosh. It's the first attempt knitnscribble made at knitting a shawlette, easy, great for beginners, knit on US size 7 (4.5mm) circular needle, and there's no endless counting starting out at the cast on.

Still this triangle scarf has a little pleated edge, which gives it lots of charm and flair without lace stitches. The shawl can be knit as a handkerchief scarf or larger for a full-sized shawl with a ruffle. This one uses 3 skeins of light worsted yarn or 675 yds. If you want it larger, then you'll need more yarn.







The one pictured at right is 46 in. across in width. This is a free pattern from Madelinetosh, a wonderful source of hand-dyed yarns you will love, very soft and just the fiber you want near your skin. You can download and print out this easy shawl pattern "Mara" here.
You'll find an unending selection of summer blend yarns at WEBS Yarn Store online, shipping internationally, too.
