When I made my spring shawl (and then one for my mother) my three year old wanted one too. So here it is! To make it more playful I made stripes using scrap yarn from the previous spring shawls. The junior shawl is almost the same as the “spring shawl” pattern, only smaller, with stripes (optional of course) and with two braids. I was planning to make some tassels too, but in the end I felt the braids were more practical.
Yarn: I’ve used Rauma, 2 ply Gammelserie (100% Norwegian wool, 50 g = 160 m), but any similar 100% wool yarn will do.
Color A: Grey (4903)
Color B: Purple (487)
Color C: Pink (4087)
Color D: White (401)
Gauge: approx. 18 sts and 28 rows = 10×10 cm stockinette st.
Needle: 4,5 mm circular needle.
For the beginner I very much recommend using markers for the increases. As for more experienced knitters, you may prefer to skip markers entirely (I did). After a few rows it’s a lot more obvious where the increases will be. Do what you think is best!
