This pattern is for an asymmetric triangular shawl. Construction is such that you can keep knitting until it is as large as you like, or until you run out of yarn!
I knit my shawl using fingering weight yarn, but it could be done with any weight yarn you choose.
Gauge is not important since this is not a fitted garment.
My finished shawl measured approximately 7 feet by 11 inches at the widest part of the shawl.
There were 655 yards in the skein, and I used all of it except about 3 yards.
