Lazy Days Mini Shawl Knitting Pattern

1 Material
8 Hours

If you are looking for a quick and easy knitted shawl pattern, this simple triangle shawlette is for you. Light enough to wear in Spring and Summer, my mini shawl pattern is a super quick knit, suitable for all seasons.

The pattern is super easy, just simple garter stitch with a few increases and decreases to create a triangle shape. Even better, I’ve designed the pattern to only use one ball of yarn, so it’s economical too!

Made from a new soft and silky luxury yarn – Lion Brand Landscapes Fusion.

Lazy Days Mini Shawl Knitting Pattern

The little shawlette is such a fast knit – perfect if you need a quick project for some instant crafty gratification.

It only took me a couple of evenings to finish, and was ready to wear as soon as I cast off the final stitches – no blocking required.

The gauge isn’t super critical, but I would suggest using a digital scale to weight your yarn just before you get to the half way mark in the pattern to make sure you will have enough to finish.

I’ve allocated around 5g spare to allow for those that knit with a slightly looser gauge.

You will need:

Finished size (unblocked): 26.5cm (10.5″) wide x 117cm (46″) long (keep in mind the fabric is quite stretchy with soft drape)

Gauge (approx) 10st and 20 rows in 10x10cm (4″x4″) in garter stitch

Knitting Stitches used:

  • CO – Cast on
  • K – Knit stitch
  • kfb – Knit front and back (increase stitch)
  • ssk – Slip Slip Knit (decrease stitch)
  • BO – Bind off

Triangle Knitted Shawl Pattern instructions:

Knit from end to end in garter stitch with increases every four rows until you are halfway though yarn ball, then decreasing every four rows to end.

You have the option of counting rows to determine when to switch from increases to decreases (by following my pattern suggestion) or using the basic formula and weighing your yarn ball to determine when you’ve used up half.
