Sometimes you want a pattern that’s nearly instant gratification. The Simple Chunky Knit Shawl from Craftfoxes is just the thing for those times when you want a new accessory for a date night later in the week or a party on the weekend and you don’t have a lot of time to knit in the meantime.
Worked in a super bulky yarn with a bit of sparkle, this shawl is actually worked in stockinette stitch with the reverse side out. It uses size 50 US needles (that’s 101.5 cm) so it takes very little time to stitch this up. I will warn you that projects and needles this big can get heavy fast, so you may need to take more breaks than usual.
But the results will be well worth it whether you wear this for a night on the town or over a T-shirt and jeans. Or both.
