Tips for Knitting Shawls

I found this video by Skeino Yarn extremely helpful. It explains the different ways to knit a shawl.  The Memory Poncho I’m knitting is being done with the last technique.


Log Cabin inspired Memory Poncho

After Watching Very Pink Knit’s video, “Learn to Knit a Log Cabin Blanket“, I was inspired to use up my scrap yarn which had accumulated the past four years. I started a “Memory Poncho”, using yarn from hand-knit projects I had made. As I knit each rows with the different colours, I remember each project made with the yarn, and each person it was made for.
