We have had scorching hot weather all over the country and while I wouldn't say I'd be wearing a shawl outside but they are handy to have available to throw on in an air conditioned car, grocery shopping or whenever it gets a little chilly!
The finished size of the shawl is approximately 75” across top x 15” wide (at widest point). The stitches for this shawl knitting pattern are both written out and charted.

Close to You by Justyna Lorkowska is a Free Ravelry download pattern designed to use just one skein (or more, it’s easy to adjust) of any gorgeous handpainted yarn to make a shawlette for someone who’s close to you too!
This simple but stylish shawl is knitted from one end with gradual increases to form a triangular shawl which is fun to knit and easy to wear. The zigzag border with eyelets gives it a nice touch and makes the knitting interesting.
One: approx. 166cm/65.25” wide and 38 cm/15” long at center spine.
1 skein of any fingering weight yarn.
4.0 mm (US #6) circular needle (80 cm/32” long).
1 stitch marker, tapestry needle for weaving.
17 sts and 44 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
The Tarla Shawl by Catherine Salter Bayar is a free Ravelry download until July 7th, 2021. A garter stitch eyelet leaf lace runs along one side, as this right angle triangular scarf grows 1 stitch each row along the other. “Tarla” means “field” in Turkish, so envision a tract of seed stitch working into a hedgerow of garter stitch, then replanted by a plot of 1x1 vertical rib bounded again by garter stitch. These fields alternate positions to complete this reversible 2-skein project.
Materials: 2 skeins, Urth Uneek Cotton DK
Dimensions: 24.5”/ 62 cm wingspan 33”/ 84 cm at widest point, 44”/ 112 cm on the diagonal.
Needles: US 6 / 4 mm
Gauge: 22 sts x 32 = 4”/10 cm in Stockinette St. Gauge is not crucial.
012 Shawl by Martin Storey is available as a free Ravelry download! This is a very easy ribbed rectangular shawl with an easily memorized repeat for a lovely lightweight wrap.

WIPs and FOs
This week I don't have an FO (finished object)...My WIP (work in progress) should be finished this weekend though!
The Fireworks 4 Day KAL by Olive Knits runs from July 1 until July 30th. The Official end of KAL and Virtual Bind Off Party will be livestreamed on July 30th. The pattern can bee found HERE. Olive Knits also has an Olive Knits Student Lounge Facebook Group and Olive Knits Facebook Group.
The Fireworks by Marie Greene has a slightly cropped body. From the underarms, I knit for 5 inches before working the final firework side detail.
The sleeves are also knit for 5 inches before the sleeve firework detail stitches are worked and centred on the outside of the sleeves.
I decided to continue the sleeve firework detail down to the cuff. One more sleeve to finish! I can't wait to block this to open up the stitches!
