Follow My Lines Shawl


Hi Everyone! So, A little backstory about this shawl: I had this yarn for more than a year and a half, tried some ideas using it, But none of them were any good, and the yarn went back on my shelf. This month, I am into knitting lines, ribs and stripes, and got inspired by them, so here we are. Just follow my lines to get this shawl. I hope you try it, it is really easy to make if you follow the instructions with patience. Good luck!

Update: I have finished knitting a matching hat for this shawl! Click the link to see the pattern → Follow My Lines Hat

    1. You can actually print anything off the internet by right clicking on the page, this will open an additional dialogue box, in the open box scroll down to print and click on it, this will take you to print preview, from print preview you can instruct your printer to only print the pages the pattern is on. If you click on print without print preview and your printer is set to "all" it will print everything including advertising and all the comments, which you may not want. Hope this helps.
