Fingering (14 wpi) ?
16 stitches = 4 inches
in garter
US 5 - 3.75 mm
425 - 489 yards (389 - 447 m)
One size - easily adjustable by adding more pattern repeats

This pattern is also available as part of my new e-book Primavera: an Eco-friendly e-book with 5 original shawl designs.

Giro is a unisex, asymmetrical shawl knitted on the bias, totally reversible with a pattern that combines the squishiness of garter stitch with the cool texture of elongated stitches. Its diagonal lines are accentuated by the variegated yarn used, but it works well with solid colors too.

Pattern is very flexible and size is easily adjustable – when you achieve the desired length, simply work the picot bind-off.
As shown has 25 repeats and used 425.9 yds of Drops Delight (fingering weight yarn, 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon), 16 colorway) and is 101 x 42 cm (39.7 x 16.5”).
You may use any weight yarn and adjust needle size accordingly.
This fun and versatile wrap knits up quickly too!
