Doty Knit Shawl/Scarf Free Pattern | KT and the Squid

I designed this shawl for those beautiful striped yarns out there. The Doty Shawl is asymmetrical and starts with just s few stitches. I love how the stripes get thinner as the shawl gets wider. The great thing is you can use any yarn and any appropriate size needles.

What you’ll need:

Any weight yarn

  • For the sample I used 1 skein (220 yds) of Cascade North Shore Prints in Princess. You’ll want to use more than 1 skein if you want a larger shawl to wrap around you.

Appropriate size needles

  • I used size 6/4mm circular needles.
