As written, the shawl measures 115 inches/ 292 centimetres long and 14 inches/ 35 centimetres deep measured at its deepest point, after blocking.

Instructions are included to modify the length and depth of the shawl so it can be made using only one skein of fingering weight yarn.

The shawl is knit side to side with the body of the shawl and lace border worked simultaneously. All increases and decreases are worked in the garter stitch body of the shawl.

 Stitch markers (2)
 Row counters (2)
 Tapestry needle

 Knit  Decreases
 Purl  Increases

This oversized yet cozy and elegant shawl is inspired by nature and the world around us. The beautiful green hues of the scarf are reminiscent of the last of the green grass on a crisp fall day while yarnovers and decreases create little lacy paw prints throughout.
