This is a very simple shawl to knit, and could suit most yarns. There yo increases, marked by stitch markers, and a knit 2 together cast off. The pattern is written. The fastening broosh is made using Dorset button techniques and the pattern has a photo and written tutorial.
Tension: 10cm x 10cm square = 22 sts x 28 rows in stocking stitch, size 4mm needles or appropriate size to achieve the correct tension, yarn needle for sewing up, 4ply 100g, 400m approx, DK 200g 400m approx (will come out bigger). I’ve used a Rosie’s Moments 4ply Roly Poly in the sample.
