Sweater Shawl for a Loom
4 skeins Wool-ease thick and quick Chunky (or super bulky wool/wool blend) for average height person. For a longer shawl, add an additional skein of yarn.
Regular Gauge loom (½ inch between pegs) with at least 55 pegs, that is sturdy enough to hold the weight of a heavy piece of knitting. CinDwoods 90 peg afghan loom was used for the sample.
Three 2-inch buttons
A needle knit pattern for a sweater shawl was in “Mary Jane’s Farm Magazine” October 2009 issue, and inspired me to make this piece. It is a simple rectangle, with a single button hole at one end, and three buttons on the other end. The buttons let you wear the shawl asymmetrically, or button it as a little cape. The center of the shawl may be rolled over to form a collar.
