Knit update: The Green Fairy

Finally, had time to take pics of the Green Fairy shawl. (dont ask me why I called it that. It just came to mind when I saw how the shawl was turning out while knitting it!).

The pattern is called Huge triangle shawl taken from "Greetings from Knit Cafe" by Suzan Misher.

Really simple pattern. Start by casting on 2 stitches. Make 1 increase at both ends on each row in a stockingnette stitch. Continue until the shawl is large enough for you (or when you run out of yarn!)

I added 2 rows of single crochet as a simple border to keep the edges from curling up too much.

Simple, easy and requires minimal thinking. Perfect for knitting while stuck in a traffic jam or watching the telly.
