Broome Street Shawl

If you still haven't knitted a shawl to keep you toasty and warm...perhaps this pattern can change your mind. (unless you live on the equator!)

• Lion Brand Jiffy® Yarn: Grape 8 Balls
• Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
• Circular knitting needle size 10 (6 mm), 40 in. (101.5 cm) long

15 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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 less 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.

Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Cast on 260 sts.
Beg with a knit row, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 7 rows.
Next Row (WS): Knit.
Beg with a k row, work in St st for 3 rows.
Next Row (WS): Knit.
Rep last 4 rows until piece measures about 23 in. (58.5 cm) from beg.
Beg with a k row, work in St st for 7 rows. Bind off.
Weave in ends.
