This is a FREE pattern till my brother’s birthday.

My Grandparents lived in a quaint cottage in Scotland called “Craig-Y-Var”. Childhood memories of time spent with them are a source of great happiness to me. When I was designing this shawl I experienced lots of peace and enjoyment in my life. This knitted asymmetrical shawl is filled with increases and decreases to form points of different heights utilizing the simple beauty of garter stitch. I hope you receive lots of pleasure knitting this simple yet stunning shawl.

The finished measurements are: after blocking: 19” x 90” (when you include the points then the width is actually 28”)

This shawl is created from one side to the other with minimal finishing work. I have broken down the instructions into 13 steps.

Thank you to the following talented knitters who took the time to test knit this design for me…sheiladeedee, knitgrl, josefine, compuknit.
