Cool....6 confirmed knitters so far.

Dangles, have you made your decision yet? Maybe we could have you start it off and mail it to me.

We need to check out the mail service in the other direction....

Cool Dangles!

So, you're gonna start off our shawl and mail it to me.

You can use size 8 or 9 needles. DK or sportweight yarn are almost the same, so either will be fine. If you want to keep your needles, just run a thread through the stitches when you finish your section before you mail it to me.

We usually include a small journal with our projects, so we can write our thoughts as we are knitting. You can get an inexpensive journal, or you can just leave that part out, and I'll add it when the shawl comes to me.

Here's the pattern, which I found online HERE.

Simplest Shawl in Garter Stitch
This is the basic pattern:
Cast on 3 stitches
Row One - K1, YO, knit to end of row. Turn.
Repeat Row One for every row


This will make a garter stitch (every row knitted) shawl with a row of eyelets along both sides where you increase at the beginning of each row. The advantage to a garter stitch shawl is that it will not curl on the edges.


SO, this means that everyone will be knitting in garter stitch, to keep things simple. No calculations necessary.

Attached is a photo of a completed Oddball Shawl for our reference.

How will you determine how much each person will knit. since unlike the blanket, three inches at the end of the shawl will be considerably more knitting than three inches at the beginning?

We can each knit for 2, 3, or 4 inches, depending on how much time we have available. Then, we will post photos showing our progress. When the shawl looks like a good size, we will decide who to give it to.

The list of knitters can grow every day, because we can make several shawls. They will be much quicker to knit, and won't be expensive to mail to each other, so we won't have to worry about putting the names in any sort of order.
