Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 17 sts + 21 rows (about 4 inch) in pattern to knit a shawl that is about 15-1/2 inch wide x 62 inch long. Remember to check your gauge. Use any size needles to obtain the gauge. Download template for special and standard knitting stitches and abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Notes: To make a wider or narrower shawl, cast on fewer or more multiples of 11 sts. Each multiple of 11 sts measures about 2-1/2 inch. To make a shorter of longer shawl, repeat the 16 rows of the Pyramid Pattern fewer or more times. Each 16 row repeat measures about 3 inch.
