Garden of Minis Shawl

Garden of Minis Shawl

Garden of Minis is an elongated, asymmetrical triangle shape with an easy to learn lace & cable panel reminiscent of flowers & vines growing up a trellis. The floral panel runs along one edge with all the shaping happening in a cozy garter-stitch section which makes for an engaging & stress-free knit. Since you begin working at the short edge, you’re also able to finish your shawl whenever you’re ready to be done with it or whenever you’re close to running out of yarn. I’ve included my method for never running out of yarn when playing yarn chicken so you can knit on with confidence!


This is a fun & relaxing boomerang shawl designed to play with any minis you want to use with it. (Like some freshly opened Advent Minis maybe? This sample was made to highlight my Halloween Countdown Calendar from Toad Hollow & I’m so in love with how it turned out!)
