Gentle: A Fully Reversible Shawl for Many Yarns

-An old-fashioned triangle shawl with a secret; simplified short-row shaping curves it securely around your shoulders.

-The simple lace border and subtle ‘collar’ are worked while you knit the shawl with an easily-memorized row repetition.

-Because each sideways row is slightly different from its neighbors, pooling in hand-painted yarns is minimized.
-If you use bulky or super bulky yarn you can complete it with a few evenings in front of the tv; and when you are finished, you have a fully-reversible warm and cozy shawl to keep or gift to someone you love.

-I have provided specific instructions for using fingering, sport/dk, worsted, Aran, bulky and super bulky yarns as well as guidelines for using whatever yarn you have on hand. As long as you have a relaxed tension with the needles you use, gauge is not crucial.
