REMNANT Shawl (Free Handspun Knitting Pattern)

REMNANT Shawl (Free Handspun Knitting Pattern)

A super easy pattern!  You will learn the basics of knitting a triangle with a lace border and get to use up all the remnant yarns in your stash! I used all the handspun yarns from my SPINDLING series in this shawl, and it's such a fun piece to wear!


  • Size 35, 32 inch circular needles (piece will be knitted flat)

  • A box of yarn scraps - I used all handspun but feel free to mix with commercial. Any yarns will work for this pattern - any gauge.

  • Yarn scraps for fringe (optional / not pictured)


Cast on two stitches

Row 1: Knit 1, YO (yarn over), Knit 1 (now you have 3 stitches on your needles)

Row 2: K1, YO, Knit to end (now you have 4 stitches on your needles)

Continue the pattern of K1, YO, Knit to end until the shawl is as wide as you want it to be. 

Bind off using a stretchy bind off technique (Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off, or go up a needle size)

Add fringe if you like.

Weave in loose ends

Block with Unicorn Fibre Rinse.  Gently pat dry, reshape and dry flat.
