No Time Flat Shawl
Check out this quick knit shawl pattern to whip yourself up a cold-weather accessory.
The No Time Flat shawl is a beauty in self-striping yarn. The zig-zag pattern of the stitches gives the color changes a unique, sloping look that's easier than it looks to achieve. The seed stitch border helps keep this easy knit shawl for curling, and also helps give it a little bit of texture. Since Bernat Pop yarn comes in so many different colors, you're bound to find a look for this shawl that you love. While it takes circular needles to complete, this shawl is knit flat, so there's no need to fret if you haven't knit in-the-round yet.
