If you love knitting beautiful shawls, why not take the next step and design one yourself? A little inspiration and some basic maths are all you'll need, as Rosee Woodland explains...
There are only so many times you can knit a shawl before you start to think, “is this it?”. Because the shape is so basic, it’s the perfect starting point for creating your first unique design. You can keep it very simple, or go wild with complex stitch patterns and still not come unstuck - as long as you keep a calculator and a bit of common sense handy!
Of course, not all shawls are easy to design or make, but if you’ve never written a knitting pattern before, this kind of accessory is the perfect place to dip your toe in the water.
