Day 4 – The square

Day 4 in the #5shawls5day challenge is the square. I have knit one square shawl, which, since it’s square, I consider to be a blanket. A square is hard to wear unless you fold it but I  have been thinking of how to make this shawl into a rectangle and that could be pretty cool. Also, this way of making blankets is very nice as well but it’s not a shawl. A shawl should be possible to wear over your shoulders or around your neck, not something that you would prefer to wrap your legs in while knitting on the couch. It’s tricky to wear an unfolded square around your neck. It’s a good shape, a cool shape, but it’s not a shawl.
