Little House Shawl for a Grown-Up

by Joanna

I have had a lot of requests for creating an adult-size version of The Little House Shawl. I have made three or four variations, and this one is my favorite. Read on for simple modifications.

Adult Sized Little House Shawl
Follow instructions exactly as written for the child's Little House Shawl, substituting dk weight yarn and using size 6 needles. I used about 480 yards of this scrumtious Lorna's Laces Honor, a luscious alpaca and silk blend. Yummy.

That's all.
Simple and sweet.


  1. Hi! I'd love to know what method of casting on you recommend for this shawl!

  2. Hi Jackie, I used a long tail cast on for this project. I hope this helps!
    Happy Knitting!

  3. Howdy! The Little House Shawl that you created is so beautiful! I want to knit it but you do not say how many hanks of Malabrigo Sock yarn to use, each hank has 440 yards. How many did you use? Thanks and I am waiting to knit it!!!!!! Truly, Janice
