The Sixth Degree Shawl is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. The free knit shawl pattern features increases along one side of the work every few rows, which forms a right triangle. The yarn over increases are hidden in this piece's chain edge. The wide, diagonal ribs are formed by simply alternating groups of six knit and purl stitches. The end result is a truly stunning knit shawl pattern you can wear again and again. This free pattern is also ideal if you're interested in knitting a prayer shawl for someone in need. Think of comforting thoughts as you work up this stunning design and you will be so pleased with the finished product.

This is an interesting pattern. I happen to like when patterns are written like this, row by row. I just use a row counter to let me know where I am. I think this will looks beautiful when it is done. Thank you.
