Ashford Shawl

For those knitters that are just starting out or live in a really cold climate, make yourself an Ashford Shawl.

It's made with a Fisherman's Wool Yarn, like:
Lion Brand Yarn Fisherman' Wool
Weight Category: 4
8.00 oz./227 g (465 yd/425 m)
size 9 needles
Authentic 100% Pure Virgin Wool with natural lanolin oil, or any other 100% wool yarn.

18 stitches + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Pattern stitch. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

SHAWL Cast on 91 stitches. Row 1: Knit 1, *purl 1, knit 1; repeat from * across. Row 2: Knit. Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until almost all yarn has been used. Bind off.
FINISHING Weave in ends.
