Little Acts of Kindness
Short Description: Little Acts of Kindness is a little sideways triangular shawl, that bit-by-bit, expands and grow. It serves as a reminder that little actions amount to great change over time: and if we act in the mindset of doing good and serving others, then that will aﬀect positive change over time. So if it seems like your acts of service aren’t making any change, think to your knitting: each stitch on their own doesn’t do much, but together, they transform your yarn into something beautiful and magical.
This shawl is simple to adjust for diﬀerent yarn weights and yardages as both sides of the design use the same amount of yarn. Weigh your yarn and split it into two cakes (or take note of the weight as you work the pattern) to ensure that both sides will have enough yarn to spare. As an alternative version of this shawl, you can continue working the increase section as long as you like, without decreasing.
Gauge: 26 sts and 36 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Stitch pattern. Gauge is not crucial to this project, but varying gauges can aﬀect yardage and fnal measurements.
Finished Measurements: A: 44 inches (112 cm) B : 16 inches (41 cm) This pattern is charted only.
Materials Used: Knitcraft & Knittery: Fingering Weight Merino (Fingering; 100% Merino; 437 yards/ 100 grams). One skein in Silver Fox.
Needle Size: US6 (4mm) circular needle. A long circular needle is recommended, in order to accommodate the large number of stitches as the shawl grows.
