Simple Shawlette knit in 220 Superwash Paints

220 Superwash Paints has been in our line for a while, but I haven't had time to pay attention to it until recently.  I found a subtle color combination that would be lovely for spring and summer.  It was important to see what one skein would create, but I wanted it to be adaptable to be larger - so the Simple Shawlette was created.  It is worked from 3 stitches from the center of the edge and can be made to whatever size the knitter desires.  One skein made a shawlette that is about 32" across the top and 14" deep at the point.  Two to three skeins would make quite a respectable sized shawl. So here is the pattern: Materials: - 1 skein 220 Superwash Paints (shown in 9942) - US 7 needles - 2 stitch markers Abbreviations: - K - Knit - YO - Yarn Over - pm - Place Marker - sm - Slip Marker - K2Tog - Knit 2 Together CO 3 stitches Row 1 - K1, YO, [pm]K1 [pm] YO, K1 Row 2 - Knit Row 3 - K1, YO,K1, YO [sm]K1 [sm] YO, K1, YO, K1 Row 4 - Knit S
