Stockinette Stitch Shawlette

Hello knitters!

It has been a while since I last posted a pattern here due to my mishap back in January. But I am happy to say that I am recovering nicely. Currently, I am no longer in a boot and started driving again this past week. I’ve been going to physical therapy for two weeks now and have about another month to go.

It’s been an interesting journey and I underestimated how difficult the recovery phase would be. With that said, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Being able to drive again is huge step forward even though the pain still persists. I imagine the ankle stiffness and pain will be with me for months to come but having my mobility back is pretty awesome.

About a month ago, I started on a shawlette using the Schachenmayr yarn I bought over a year ago. I finished the project last night and blocked it. Here is the finished project:

If you’ve never knitted a triangle shawl before, this will be the easiest one you’ll ever knit! Aside from the eyelets around the bottom edge, the rest of the shawl is knitted in stockinette. For extra flair, I added tassels to the ends. I’d like to point out that the edges do curl. This was done on purpose because I like the way it looks. If you don’t like the curl, I suggest you add a border around the edges. This pattern is worked from the bottom up.

The material is cotton and knitted with needles a few sizes larger than the recommended because this shawl is designed to be worn in warmer climates.

Measures approx. 63″ x 16″ (160cm x 41cm) after blocking.

Here is the pattern:


1 skein of Schachenmayr Tahiti yarn in Sunset

  • 306 yds / 280 m per skein
  • 1.75 oz/50 g per skein
  • 99% Cotton/1% Polyester

US 7 (4.5mm) 24″ cable needles


CO 5 sts.

Row 1 (RS): k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1. (9 sts)
Row 2: purl.
Row 3: k1, yo, k1, yo, knit to the last 2 sts, yo, k1, yo, k1.
Row 4: purl.

Repeat Rows 3-4 until the desired length. For the example above, knit Rows 3-4 until you have 245 stitches. Bind off loosely and weave in loose ends. Blocking is highly recommended.

Tassels (Optional)

I found this website which shows how to make tassels. It has a step-by-step written tutorial as well as a picture tutorial.

Attach your two tassels to both ends of the shawl. There you have it – your very own Stockinette Stitch Shawlette!

Casual Lace Knit Shawl

Hello knitters!

It’s been what seems like an eternity since I last posted a knitting pattern here on Purl Avenue. My day job has consumed so much time and I find it difficult to find time to knit and post new information here. There are so many things that I’d like to take on but there seems to never enough time in the day for me to do so 🙁

After completing the Linen Chevron Cowl, I was finally able to start a new project with The Louisa Harding yarn I bought while I was in Vienna, VA several months ago. With this fun yarn, I knitted a lace shawl that I could wear on a casual day out.

The Casual Lace Knit Shawl is a simple and straightforward project that is perfect for those who have never knitted a shawl before. It uses a little over three skeins of Louisa Harding Noema Yarn which is more than I expected. But overall, I am very pleased with the result.
