"life is meant to be colourful"

Easy Shawl without pattern


Hi dear friends! I have missed so much knitting. It used to be my number one favourite craft to do. Last week I just had to start to knit.


I went to my yarn drawer and first took those three pastel colours balls. They are really nice and thin, soft mohair. Then what else? I want to make something improvised. I picked all the other similar yarns I had, no matter if they are thicker. Some of the delicous colour are just ‘scraps’ but they will give a nice taste.

With my filled yarn basin and very big round needle, I began. Now here you can start as you like. With only few (for example three) loops or several. I didn’t count but made perhaps about 30 loops to start. Then always in the beginning of each row, after the first stitch, I increase one loop. I knit all the time the ‘knit’ stitches (no purl stitches).

I chose to knit with these big needles because they will give very light, airy, comfortable to use reasult. Also knitting with them is esy. No need to stress our hands and sholders to get even, same size stitches.


This is improvised knitting and I want to make fun, creative looking shawl. So pick any yarns you like. They don’t need to be same or even similar. Mix mohair, plain, colours, thin and thick yarns – this is supposed to be fun!

Knit as much as you like, make small, big – any sized scarf or shawl! You don’t need to decide in the beginning what you will make. Start and let the project lead you.

I’m still not sure what colour I allow to enter to my shawl … green is still waiting my decision.

Have a lovely weekend and happy knitting!
