Easy Cranberry Shawl

By: Marie Segares from undergroundcrafter.com
Easy Cranberry Shawl

In the Designer's Words: "This project is perfect for a novice shawl knitter because it is predominantly garter stitch and will not require much blocking to keep the fabric flat and even. The mirrored, plaited cables on the spine keep the shawl interesting and add a unique touch to the simple, ridged fabric.

Skills Used: Basic knitting skills: cast on, knit, purl, bind off
Knitting in rows: Increasing (kfb and yo)
Cables (C4B and C4F, with written instructions in the pattern)"
Even if cranberry is not your favorite flavor during the fall and winter months, you have to admit it is a stunning color to use when creating knitting patterns. The deep, dark red of the Easy Cranberry Shawl will look absolutely stunning again cool winter hues while keeping you extra warm this winter. This free crochet shawl pattern is an easy knitting pattern that uses worsted weight yarn, ensuring that it is thick enough to fight off the cold. This wonderful shawl pattern would make a lovely DIY gift for a friend or an easy way to add warmth to your wardrobe.

That's really pretty! It's cool here today so I am all over these shawls, but I can't knit all of them before winter, unfortunately. This one goes on my to do list, though and I WILL knit it as soon as I can. It looks simple enough to make so it should go fairly fast for a project like this.
