Weee-Ahhhhh, Weee-Ahhhh! (That’s the “New Pattern Alarm”… couldn’t you tell?)
I came up with this project on vacation, in the back of a minivan, when I was stuck with a ball of lovely blue gradient hand-spun, a pair of needles, and no pattern. I wanted to make a shawl, but not a normal shawl. A shawl that was easy enough to knit in the back of a minivan while sightseeing. Something with an interesting shape, but virtually no pattern to memorize.
Thus was born the One Row Wonder.
The One Row Wonder Shawl might just be the perfect pattern. With only one row to memorize, you’ll have a brand new shawl with almost no effort! It can be knit at any gauge and with any yarn. It’s a perfect way to use up leftover yarn or that extra-special skein that’s been waiting in your stash (you know the one). The finished shawl has a unique shape, which wears like a scarf, but has the look of a triangle shawl. The One Row Wonder will knit up in no time and quickly become a favorite part of your wardrobe.
I made mine with a lovely, chunky yarn, but now I’m itching to work one up in fingering yarn. How cute would it be made with stripes of leftover sock yarn?

EDIT 9/20/2015: Sorry for the confusion about the “Loop Increase.” Apparently lots of places have different definitions. This tutorial from Knit Picks outlines how I do the Loop Increase.
On the shawl I am confused on the LOOP?
Sorry about the confusion. Try looking here for a pretty good tutorial!
can you just do a YO?
Hi Susan- Sorry about the delay (I don’t have a good excuse, your comment just slipped through the cracks!). You could totally do a YO, you’ll just end up with a little eyelet in your shawl for each increase. 🙂 Allison
