Broadwyn is an asymmetrical triangle knit from the short end, with decreases on one side & a lace panel on the other to make a long scarf-like shawl. With i-cord all around (an i-cord cast on, then inline i-cord edging), it is a modern & dynamic addition to any wardrobe, no matter how you drape it. Throw it on, toss the end around, and enjoy!

This shawl begins with an i-cord cast-on. A video tutorial is available here.
