Full Answer

The three-button shawl knitting pattern is the most downloaded original pattern ever on Loopsknitting website. The site does caution knitters against using yarn substitutions because the garment needs the perfect blend of loft and stitch definition in order to work. The cashmere merino blend from Margrite Bulky has the perfect blend while many other yarns do not. If a knitter would really like to use another yarn, Loops recommends the Ariosa and Comfort Chunky yarns.

Loops also has other free patterns for those who love to knit including a three-way multi-wrap sweater, which was designed for a bulkier gauge knit. Each pattern includes a photograph, supply list and directions on how to knit the look properly.

For questions on how to knit, new knitters can find knitting sites online to learn how to knit by watching free knitting videos.

They also offer more advanced knitting techniques and a knitting form for those who want to learn even more.
