E-wrap cast on 4 stitches starting at needle 50 on the left side of the machine bed.
Knit 2 rows and increase one stitch on the right until you reach needle 50 on the right using your favorite increase method.
Knit 35 rows straght for a smaller size or 50 rows straight for a larger size.
Decrease one stitch on the right using your favorite method every 2 rows until 4 stitches are left.
Cast off the 4 stitches.
Finish the edges with a piecust trim, fringe or crochet.
Terry felt that the shawl tails were too long, and might get tangled in wheel chairs or walkers so she made the following modification:
Instead of casting on 4 stitches starting at needle 50, she cast on 17 stitches, then she followed the instructions as given except she cast off the shawl when there were 17 stitches remaining.
This simple triangle shawl is shared with us by Ruby Randall. This shawl was knitted at the North Texas Machine Knitters Guild Knit-In in February 2009 and everyone enjoyed making it. It would be a great charity or prayer shawl project that anyone could make on a Bulky or Bond machine.
