Emma is new knitter and wanted to tackle her first shawl and decided that the Truckee Shawlette, one of our FREE patterns, would be perfect! Since the original yarn used is no longer available, she substituted Malabrigo Sock, and it's perfect! Using just 1 skein each of 2 colors, the Truckee shawlette is comprised of a series of garter stitch stripes increasing width for a simple striped crescent shaped shawette. It's a great knit for a beginner knitter wanting an easy first shawl experience, or a more experienced knitter looking for an easy tv-knit. Emma did a great job on her shawl! Thanks Emma!
