PURL RIDGE SHAWL

This shawl is worked from the top down and begins with a garter tab cast on. This cast on is used because it allows for a continuous garter stitch edge along the top of the shawl, which makes for a nice detail. Once the cast on is complete, set-up rows are worked, and stitch markers are placed. The pattern is established by repeated 4 rows to the desired size. Once the shawl is complete, it’s time to block the shawl and weave in the ends. Jen shares her tips on how to block this shawl shape.
