Postage Stamp Shawl

Description

This super-cozy triangle wrap in two sizes (petite/tall) features a throwback texture borrowed from old-fashioned “postage stamp” quilt patterns—with tidy alternating blocks worked in rich garter stitch and stockinette, then zipped together with a cute cable. The wrap is worked side to side, starting at the wide end; the stitch count diminishes with every right side row. The motif is incredibly simple to work, with wrong side rows all in purl stitch—just the project you’ll want to sit down with at the end of a hectic day. 

The Postage Stamp shawl is part of the design collection for our 10th annual 2020 Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2020 will go directly to our scholarship in partnership with Foster Care to Success.

This Red Scarf scholarship pattern is knit in our Bare Naked Wools Festivus (100% Natural Targhee) in a limited-edition, custom colorway, Cardinal. A portion of yarn sales go directly to the scholarship.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
