Impulse Shawl Pattern

All knitters do it. We see a gorgeous ball of pricey yarn and say to ourselves, “Just one skein!” Sometimes it can be hard to decide how to use these amazing yarns that we buy in small quantities.

This gauge-less pattern will produce at least a small neck shawl with 100 yards of most yarns. Three examples (all using less than 250 yards!) are provided to help you visualize and choose the materials for your own project.
