For the Love of Garter - V1.0 - PDF Knitting Pattern
A 1-color garter stitch triangular shawl that is truly purl-free!
I love garter stitch - it eliminates that pesky purl stitch that just messes with my flow. This shawl has NO purl sts - just good ol’ garter and some simple lace. This shawl is the quintessential TV knit project!
