The Golden Square Shawl is a garter stitch shawl that forms ¾ of a square. The large back panel keeps you warm when worn flat, and the lofty silk can be wrapped around your neck like a scarf for a sleeker look. By knitting the shawl with two strands of silk on large needles, the resulting material is light and luxurious.

Gauge: 10 sts and 11 rows = 4” (10 cm) in unblocked garter stitch
Gauge is not extremely important in this project. A change in gauge simply means that you will add or remove rows to obtain a shawl that measures 62” (157 cm) along the neckline.
