WIP Wednesday: Stashbustin’ #20

I’ve been itching to make my first ever shawl. I had no less than 10 in my Ravelry queue…

Spiral Staircase Shawl by LizAnn Petch

And the winner was…….Spiral Staircase Shawl for my Stashbustin’ #20 project. I was attracted the hitchhiker look of the teeth and the simple garter body. I think baby steps were in order on my first shawl, lol. I made it through the first few teeth over the past weekend!

I’m using some leftover Berroco Vintage DK in deep red that I had from my Stockinette Shrug. I’m working on size 5 US metal circular needles. This has made for great TV knitting even if the needles are a bit slippery. I can’t decide if I’m going to stop at 15 teeth as the pattern is written or add a few extra. Just have to try it on when I get there!

What is your favorite shawl pattern?

  1. Very nice. I love that pattern for the same reasons that you do and I haven’t met a Berroco yarn yet that I didn’t love. I’m making a similar shawl out of Berroco linen and cotton yarns now.
