Franziska is a traditional triangular shawl - due to the simple stitch patterns it is easy to knit even for beginners. You start with a garter stitch cast on (described in pattern) and increase sts in every RS and WS row. Advantage: This technique ensures that you can knit until there is no yarn left anymore.
