INSTRUCTIONSTriangle Shawl Cropped

Ewrap cast on (from left to right) 2 stitches.

Row 1:Ewrap knit to end of row.

Row 2: Increase one at the beginning of the row, purl to the end of row. (Recommend to use the Half Hitch cast on method: Here is a video link to Bethany Dailey’s video on the Half Hitch increase).

Rep Row 1 and Row 2: until you have increased to 20 stitches.

Next row: Ewrap knit to the end of row

Next row: Purl to the end of row.

**Next row: Ewrap knit to the end of row.

Next row: Decrease one at the beginning of the row, purl to the end of row.**
(To decrease, move the stitch from the last peg to the adjacent peg to the right. Ex: Move loop from peg 20 to peg 19; then purl the entire row to the end (treat the peg with the two loops as one loop)

Repeat from ** to ** until you have 2 stitches remaining.

Bind off loosely with basic bind off method.

Weave all ends in. Block to open up the stitches.

  • I just bought the Zippy. How many Zippies do I need to attach to make a full size blanket. Thank You!

  • Hi Susie, what size of blanket? You say full size, as in a full size bed? Every peg provides about 1 inch of work, (depending on the stitch and the yarn weight). If you want a blanket that is about 30 inches wide, you will need at least 30 pegs (minimum).

  • I just bought Zippy Looms but didn’t know that connectors are separate. I don’t see on the list connectors for Zippy Looms. Will you be selling them? Thanks!

  • Where can I purchase an accent button for this?
