Odd Couple Shawl 

Odd Couple combines simple auto-pilot knitting with slip stitches and texture to tame wild, variegated yarns.

The shawl can be worked with any weight of yarn, be it sock yarn, bulky or anything in between. The pattern also starts with a small number of stitches and keeps increasing so you can make a shawl as big or small as you please.

The sample was knit with 1 skein of Happy Fuzzy Yarn Corrie Sock - Verbena - on US 4 (3.5 mm needles). After blocking, the shawl was 22" deep and 51" wide at the bind off with a gauge of 5 sts/in.
