I love a top-down triangle shawl, but I don’t always want to knit lace. A plainer shawl is much more suited to wearing with a parka in the depths of winter, and is much easier to knit.

This is an ideal first shawl project for a newer knitter, or a relaxing knit for an experienced knitter. Shaped from the top down, it uses the “kfb” increase and markers to help you on your way, and it’s a great introduction to the top-down triangle construction.

If you’re not sure about yarnovers, or just not wanting fussy lace, this is the shawl pattern for you!
