basta is a stashbusting shawl meant to use up leftovers. my favorite type of project!

Basta is a triangular shawl with lots of garter stitch at the beginning switching to eyelets and a simple diamond lace pattern and ending with lots of eyelet rows.
Basta is meant to be a stashbusting shawl. So dig through those leftovers and see what looks great together.
Gauge isn’t important. We are just using up leftover yarn!

Almost Nothing

  1. 1

    The beginning of this shawl is completely knit in garter stitch (knit every row). You will be making 4 increases on the right side (always on the 3rd st and the 3rd from last st and around the center stitches) and 2 increases (always the 2nd st and 2nd to last st) on the wrong side throughout.
    CO 4sts with starting color.
    Row 1 (WS): k (add marker to front to distinguish right and wrong sides)
    Row 2 (RS): k1, (kfb)2x, k1 (6sts)
    Row 3 (WS): k1, kfb, k to last 2sts, kfb, k1 (8sts)
    Row 4 (RS): k1, kfb2x, pm, k2, pm, (kfb)2x, k1 (12sts)
    Row 5 (WS): k1, kfb, k to last 2sts slipping m, kfb, k1 (14sts) Row 6 (RS): k2, kfb, k to 1st bef m, kfb, slm, k2, slm, kfb, k to 3 sts bef end, kfb, k2 (18sts)
    Repeat rows 5 and 6 til 107 sts before 1st marker Repeat row 5 one more time (108 sts before 1st marker)

  2. 2

    Switch colors
    On a right side row, switch to new yarn color.
    Repeat rows 6 and 5 1 more time. (111sts bef 1st m)

  3. 3

    Begin lace pattern:
    The lace pattern is a row of eyelets in garter stitch followed by a diamond lace pattern and then finishing with several eyelet rows. The eyelet rows could be in other colors in order to use up more yarn or if you think you don’t have enough yarn to com- plete this section. I chose to make the eyelet row before the diamond lace and the one after in the same color as the diamond lace.
    You will continue the increases that have already been estab- lished through out the rest of the shawl as well.
    Eyelet row : Row 1 (RS): k2, kfb, k1, (yo, k2tog), rep ( ) to 1st bef m, kfb, slm, k2, slm, kfb, (k2tog, yo), rep ( ) to 4sts bef end, k1, kfb, k2
    Row 2 (WS): k1, kfb, k to m, slm, k2, slm, k to 2sts bef end, kfb, k1
    Row 3: k2, kfb, k to 1st bef m, kfb, slm, k2, slm, kfb, k to 3sts bef end, kfb, k2
    Row 4: k1, kfb, p to m, slm, k2, slm, p to last 2sts, kfb, k1 Repeat this row for rows 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14
    Row 5: k2, kfb, (k4, yo, k2tog tbl), rep ( ) to 6sts bef m, k4, yo, k2, slm, k2, slm, k2, yo, rep ( ) to 6sts bef end, k4, kfb, k2
    Note: when the yo is very close to the center sts, the kfb is left out because there will be no dec buddy and this will create the necessary inc for the center.
    Row 7: k2, kfb, yo, k2tog tbl, k1, (k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k2tog tbl, k1), rep ( ) to 5sts bef m, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k2, slm, k2, slm, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2tog tbl, k1, rep ( ) to 4sts bef end, yo, k1, kfb, k2
    Row 9: k2, kfb, (k3, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo), rep ( ) to 5sts bef m, k3, yo, k1, kfb, slm, k2, slm, kfb, k1, yo, rep ( ) to 7sts bef end, k3, yo, k1, kfb, k2
    Row 11: k2, kfb, k2, (yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, k3), rep ( ) to 1sts bef m, yo, k1, slm, k2, slm, k1, yo, k3, rep ( ) to 5sts bef end, yo, k2, kfb, k2
    Row 13: k2, kfb, k5, yo, k2tog tbl, (k4, yo, k2tog tbl), rep ( ) to 5sts bef m, k4, kfb, slm, k2, slm, kfb, rep ( ) to 7sts bef end, k4, kfb, k2
    You could switch color here. (I didn’t.) Row 15: rep row 3
    Row 16: rep row 2
    Row 17: rep eyelet row 1
    Row 18: rep row 2
    Row 19—20: rep rows 15 and 16
    This is where I switched colors.
    Row 21 (RS): rep row 15
    Row 22 (WS): rep row 4
    Row 23-28: Rep rows 15-20
    Repeat rows 21 –28 til almost out of yarn. (I could repeat only one more time.)
