Knitting pattern for Easy Peasy asymmetric shawl by Inge-Lis Holst and Katrine Hannibal
Easy Peasy is Önling's collection of basic patterns in Nordic design, written in a simple and beginner-friendly language - without abbreviations. We have designed the prettiest, softest and lightest asymmetrical shawl, simple and easy to knit. This design is a small, light shawl you can use to keep your neck warm, when a large shawl is too hot and too overwhelming. It is asymmetric and features the prettiest edges and a simple eyelet pattern that will catch the eye when you wear it. You can make it in one color or with stripes; it will be the perfect addition to your basic wardrobe. We have worked it in one of our most popular yarns, Önling No 2, made from sustainably manufactured Merino wool by a small family-operated manufacturer in Northern Italy, at the foot of the Italian alps.

The shawl is worked back and forth in garter stitch ridges with a simple eyelet row to break the garter stitch pattern and add symmetry to the asymmetric design. The asymmetric shape appears by increasing in all rows and decreasing on every second row. The pretty edges frame the shawl nicely.
You may also want to make a stripy shawl, or work less or more eyelet rows, and you can use other materials as e.g. Önling No 1 or Silk Mohair Önling No 10 - and you can make the shawl larger or smaller, as you prefer.
