My Winter Shawl @ 2009 by N.L. Banks

This pattern is a simple knit shawl, you can use very long needles instead of the circular ones, but they would be easier to work with. If you can knit, purl and do a yarn over, then you can  knit this pattern. You knit back and forth on the circular needles.


1 size 10 circular knitting needles,
 two stitch markers,
