Check out this free Shipwreck Shawl pattern from Knitty. With ragged edges and beads, it’s destined to become your next “must knit” project. Perfect!
Since the shawl is knitted circularly, there is never any need to purl. The right side of the work always faces the knitter, making it easy to spot mistakes. There are only seven increase rows in the entire project, and only one motif is worked at a time.
