Carefree KAL - The Beginning

Hooray! The Carefree KAL is underway! How is everyone doing with their shawls so far?

I took some pics of me starting my shawl, I thought I would share them with you. I tried to do them step by step for anyone who hasn't cast on a shawl like this before.

I cast on my three stitches and knit six rows. . . .

Then I turned and started picking up along the edge of my knitting. . . .

And came out the other side with 6 stitches on my needle. . . . Then I turned again and started picking up stitches in my cast on edge (this is always the trickiest part from me, which can sometimes result in swearing). . . .
And I ended up with nine stitches (and what looks like what I describe as a blob o' knitting). . . .
So I knit the first few rows of the pattern, and now it's starting to look like a shawl!Have you blogged about your shawl? If you do, shoot me a message and let me know. I will be happy to share the link here! I caught a glimpse of Crooked Knitter's shawl in her post about Vogue Knitting Live (so jealous that you were there, btw).

Happy knitting!

  1. Ooh, love the yarn. That's going to be so pretty! I got a few inches done but I think I might be off count already, thanks to the Bears. Aargh.
