Speedy Triangle Wrap

I’m in the middle trying to finish all of my knitting works in progress. Taking a look at them & deciding if I should frog them or continue. I had 5 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun, and had crocheted approximately 2.5 of them up in a cocoon wrap. I don’t know about you, but I get sucked into buying this yarn occasionally. It is easy to forget how splity it is. It is soft and squishy but maddeningly hard to use (for me). My crocheted project was uneven on  the edges and looking dismal. I decided to frog it, but this yarn is wrapped with only a piece of thread to keep the twist in and I’ll describe it as one ply. No way could I rip it out. So I gritted  my teeth and tossed it.

With the remaining two skeins I decided that knitting on very large needles was the best way to go. I couldn’t settle on a pattern so decided to make the fallback triangle shawl pattern that you can knit as large as needed and use all of this up.

This recipe is a general one, and you can switch to any stitch pattern in it or colorwork etc..  Smaller to just put around the neck, or large to curl up under on the sofa with some reading or netflix. Get creative!

Just cast on 3 stitches, knit. first row
at the beginning of each row k1, yo, knit to end.
This makes a nice edge.
Keep repeating until you are about to run out of yarn or it is large enough. and loosely bind off.
