Plump It Up! (by Maxim Cyr)


This pattern is available in English and in French as a digital download.

The "Plump it up!" shawl is a combination of reverse stockinette and fun  slip stitches. Knitted in bulky weight, it’s the perfect project for a quick last-minute gift. ⁠

82” / 208 cm
Height: 14” / 36 cm

Weight: Bulky
Fluff is a sport-weight yarn with great versatility. I chose to knit it at a bulky gauge by holding two strands of it. If you are using a non-fluffy yarn as Yarn B, look for another bulky-weight yarn or hold two strands of heavy DK- or worsted-weight yarn, and do a swatch.
