Inanna pocket shawl


An extra large knit pocket shawl is the perfect cold-weather accessory. You’ll love wrapping up in this shawl all fall and winter! Inanna is generously sized and has roomy pockets to stash your phone or book.

Method and Yarn

Inanna pocket shawl is simple to knit but still keeps you interested. Your finished wrap has a polished look thanks to the continuous i-cord on all four sides. But don’t worry! You don’t have to knit a mile of i-cord onto the edges! First, you’ll use an i-cord cast-on. Then, you’ll create a simple i-cord edge over a few stitches at the beginning and end of each row. Finally, you’ll finish with an i-cord bind-off. The smooth border levels up your piece from “homemade scarf” to “hand knit wrap.”

Wear your Inanna casually or dressed up. It is perfect as an outer layer on cold days, or to wrap up in it at the movies (are all movie theaters freezing, or is it just me?). Adding the optional pockets will make it your ultimate lounging wrap! The pockets are large so you can keep your necessities at hand while you’re relaxing at home.

Inanna uses 2 skeins of Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool. I used my favorite color, Nature’s Brown.
