Pattern {see video below}:

CO 1 stitch

Row 1: INC1, K1, INC1
Row 2: *K*
Row 3: INC1, K3, INC1
Row 4: *K*
Row 5: INC1, K5, INC1
Row 6: *K*

Row 7: INC1 *K* INC1
Row 8: *K*

Increase 2 stitches on every ODD row and then knit the next row.
Follow this pattern until you’ve reached your desired size of shawl.
I used 5 skeins for a super cozy shawl ;)
Bind-off very loosely in the K1, P1 pattern {this will help keep it from curling.}
Weave in ends and then wrap up in it!

YouTube How-to Video:

The idea for this shawl came to me when I was creating a video for one of the #100daysofknitstitches series {click here to learn more about that series} that called out for a YO at the beginning and end of a row.

I was surprised at how clean of an increase it was, so I decided to try creating a triangle shawl using this technique and I’m very happy with the result!

I think it’s the perfect shawl!

It fits all my requirements… quick & easy.

Quick is relative. 10 hours may sound like a long time, however, in the shawl world that’s super quick.

I’m working on another shawl pattern and I’ll have about 40 hours in it… so, when I put it into perspective for myself, 10 hours is not so bad. ;)

Because the pattern is easy to memorize I found it to be relaxing and therapeutic.

Again, all the things I love about a pattern!

If you make this I’d love to see pics. You can now share pics in the review section!
