I share this pattern and sorry on my second and third posts back at the very start of Knitting: A Love Story, but I'd like to share in again to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month.
You will need #15 circular needles and 10 to 15 of the most beautiful pink yarns you can find equaling about 400 yards. Now let's make a Magic Ball
Cut your yarn into 5 yard to 25 yard lengths equal to 400 yards. They don't have to be exact, they just have to be varied. Wind your yarn into little balls. Now comes the fun part. Organize the yarn in a color blend that is beautiful. It is so much fun to move the colors around, looking for the most beautiful combination. All of a sudden you will realize; THIS IS IT! The combination will be perfect, yummy, beautiful. Begin with a worsted weight which is your anchor yarn. You will use this a couple more time in the blend and to bind off. Now begin tying the pieces together using an overhand knot and leaving a tail for decoration. The tail will become an embellishment on the right side of the shawl. Wind the yarn into a ball.
The Survivor Shawl is knit end to end.
Cast on 120(ish) stitches using the cable cast on or another stretchy cast on. Long tail cast on is too tight. Now just knit every row until shawl the desired length. If you run out of yarn, cut more pieces and add them on. Cast off very loosely.
Steam/block using what ever method you prefer making sure to stretch a bit to give it a lacy look.
That's it. Isn't it the easiest project ever.
