The three-button shawl knitting pattern is the most downloaded original pattern ever on Loopsknitting website. The site does caution knitters against using yarn substitutions because the garment needs the perfect blend of loft and stitch definition in order to work.

If a knitter would really like to use another yarn, Loops recommends the Ariosa and Comfort Chunky yarns.

Loops also has other free patterns for those who love to knit including a three-way multi-wrap sweater, which was designed for a bulkier gauge knit. Each pattern includes a photograph, supply list and directions on how to knit the look properly.
