It’s all about the shape.

Okay–I hate triangular shawls because they don’t stay on. Bodies are curvy–even skinny ones. If the clothing is straight lines and angles , it doesn’t fit!! I have been on the search for perfect shawl shaping.

This is one way that fits my requirements. It is simply the top 65 rows of Dem Fisher sin Fru by Monica Eckert which was one of my KALs recently.
Once the capelet was the length I want, I knit 2 rows of garter stitch and bound off. I added garter edges at the two front edges and began to look for an edging.
Okay–I’m a leaf freak. Could be worse. Can’t find where I wrote the source of the edging. Will look for it and post later.
Here’s a close up. I’ll just sew it on. I may make some cute closing device. Inspiration still hasn’t hit about that.

  1. Thanks for making me think. I have never made a shawl that is not triangular. What you say makes alot of sense.
