This is a shawlette pattern that I designed a couple of months ago. I wanted to design a shawlette that would be fun to knit but that wouldn’t require much attention, so I created this very simple garter stitch pattern. There are no short rows involved, all the shaping is done by just decreasing or increasing stitches.

Row 6: Slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, knit to last stitch, knit last stitch, knit same stitch again into back look, knit same stitch yet again into front loop.
Repeat rows 1-6 until you’ve reached the length and width that you like.
