I’m not one of those shawl knitters who love getting lost in a sea of lace and steadily increasing stitch counts. The shawls I mostly knit and wear are workhorses in heavier yarns with tons of texture. This lovely shawl is worked from a wide end to a point, incorporating basic increases and decreases to form an unusual, very wearable arrow shape. The wide end features simple knit-and-purl texture before moving on the body where a seed-stitch texture highlights the shaping.
