The Interval Shawl from Jared Flood was designed to be the perfect “first shawl” pattern for a new knitter using only basic techniques: the knit stitch, the purl stitch and the knit-front-and-back increase. The pattern also features a simple provisional cast on with links to a video tutorial demonstrating this technique. At a relaxed gauge of 5 stitches-per-inch, the finished shawl is a great mid-weight fabric for neckwear that keeps you toasty but doesn't overwhelm.
