Zero Waste Shawl (English)
Zero Waste Shawl is written to use up almost all the yarn.
The pattern is suitable for different yarn weights – use those lonely skeins in you stash and/or some leftovers. Work the stripes as written or adjust the pattern to your own preferences and the yarn you are using.
The gauge is not crucial, but the weight of the yarn will affect the size of the finished shawl.
SIZE: Adaptable to the amount of the yarn you wish to use. See examples below.
GAUGE: 20 stitches & 23 ridges = 10 cm in garter stitch, worked with yarn 320m/100g on 4 mm (US 6) needles. The gauge is not crucial in this project.

The shawl is worked from one of the corners, on the bias, which gives a stretchy and comfortable piece to wrap around your neck. It has a slightly asymmetrical, triangular shape and looks nice from both sides. The ratio of the triangle is the same, regardless the size.
The yarn ends are felted – see video below.
