Garter Hug

This is the perfect project for those times when you have some special yarn and just want it to hug you. Simple and meditative knitting at its finest.


  • Finished Measurements: 62” wide from tip to tip, 14.5” deep at center back. The shawl pictured was lightly blocked.
  • Yarn: approximately 400 yards lace- or fingering-weight yarn. I used a no-longer-available cashmere yarn.
  • Needles: US4/3.5mm circular needle for small-circumference knitting, or size needed to get gauge.
  • Notions: stitch markers, tapestry needle.
  • Gauge: 22 sts = 4”/10 cm in garter stitch, measured after blocking.
