A fun and unique knit – the Chain Reaction shawlette is worked from a garter tab cast on and the crescent shape is made by increases at the end of each row. The body of the shawlette is knit in simple stockinette, and the fun part comes when you get to the border! Knit in strips and joined with a 3 needle bind off, the loops are constructed so that the whole piece is made in one go, with no sewing or loose ends to weave in at the end. There is a video tutorial available on how to work the loops.
This pattern is designed to showcase a beautiful hand-dyed skein, go as bold as you like!
