Mandags mønster /Monday pattern


Lilleduck's easy shawl pattern

Yarn: 100g Mohair lux from Idena
Needles: 15mm circular Addi
Size: Width 63 inches, height 51inches without tassels

This is a really simple shawl pattern, you knit this fast on thick needles and it becomes a soft and very varm shawl. I always have one of theese with me as it takes very little room in my bag. If you make it without tassels and a little smaller you can make it with 50g of mohair yarn and it will take even less space.

Pattern:
Cast on 3 stitches, knit 1, YO (yarn over), knit to end of row, turn work. Knit 1, YO, knit to end of row. This you repeat untill the shawl has the desired length and width. I had 90 stitches on the final row. Bind of loosely. This size leaves you with enough yarn to make tassels. Theese you make by twisting the yarn around your elbow as if to make a skein. Then you cut the skein in two ends so you get a lot of short lengts of yarn. I take 3 of theese and fasten double in every YO of the shawl.



Lilleduck's enkle sjal mønster
Garn: 100g Mohair Lux fra Idena
Pinner: 15mm rundpinne Addi
Størrelse: Bredde 160 cm, høyde 130cm uten frynser

Dette er et veldig enkel sjal mønster. Du strikker det fort på tykke pinner og er forbausende varmt. Jeg har alltid et av disse i vesken, da den tar liten plass. Hvis du lager den uten frynser og litt mindre holder det med ett nøste, da tar den enda mindre plass.

Mønster:
Legg opp 3 masker. Strikk 1 m r, kast, strikk rett ut omgangen. Snu arbeidet, strikk 1 m r, 1 kast, strikk rett ut omgangen. Gjenta dette mønsteret til sjalet har ønsket lengde og vidde. Jeg hadde 90 masker på siste omgang. Fell av løst. Denne størrelsen gjør at du får nok garn til frynser. De lager du ved å snurre garnet rund handen og albuen som om du skulle lage et hespe. Så kutter du denne i to ender slik at du får en haug med korte garnstumper. Jeg tok 3 tråder og festet dobbelt i hvert kast.

That yarn makes a soft, comfy shawl, doesn't it? :-) I used it for Miriam Felton's Seraphim shawl . . . before I knew you shouldn't knit your first lace project with mohair! (grin)

I love this color.

Hi, and thank you so much for sharing your pattern!
Have been looking for an easy one for a while, and couldn't wait to try. Was not able to get hold of the big needles though. (Where can you get those, by the way?) So mine turned out quite small, but still great, tx :)
