This shawl is a triangle-shaped shawl knit from the top down. It is meant to be knit by anyone, even Adventurous Beginners.
There are both charted and written directions, with counts on each row.
Use 4 full skeins of your favorite fingering-weight yarn. Or, you can mix-and-match yarn scraps. Each section will have the amount of grams you will need per section to make this easier. Be aware, the pattern is written to use up as much as each yarn as possible. To this end, you may find yourself binding off with the same color you start with. Might we recommend using your favorite skein for your first color…
