Tsidfy is a crescent-shaped shawlette with a garter stitch border that is knit from centre back to the bottom edge. This free pattern yarns over at each end are used to form the crescent shape. Increases are worked on both right and wrong sides.

Knit in Swish DK and on size 8 needles, this pretty little shawlette works up quick! The look of crescent shaped shawls is brilliant and this one is just lovely. It measures 61″ across and 16″ deep after it’s blocked so it’s just the thing you need to wrap around you on the coldest days.

This free pattern includes how to knit a shawl with 2 coloured English rib in DROPS Fabel. A piece is knitted top-down, with stripes and eyelet rows.

Work the first and last 3 stitches on shawl as an i-cord. It is important not to work too tight but to make sure to tighten the yarn a bit before continuing on row after stitches have been slipped.

This could be the right cover up for those cold nights. Get started and let us know in comments below as you finish.


Roadtrip shawl is a semi-circular shawl knit from the top-down with raglanstyle mirrored increases, a simple lace pattern, and ruffled edging. 

This free pattern is simple enough to knit while on a roadtrip (or other long and potentially monotonous experience), yet the lace pattern is sufficiently interesting to keep one’s attention and help the time pass.
