This shawl begins as a top down triangular shawl, with increases at edges and center back. Then wings are formed by increasing into the ribbed edging, then working the new stitches in the stitch pattern, with their own increases. The shawl continues in the same traveling rib pattern for both body and wings. The construction of this shawl gives it a very ergonomic shape, which is easy to wear and does not slip off the shoulders.

Stitch markers are placed between the stitch pattern and rib sections, and different stitch markers are placed at the center of each pattern section. After working a few rows, you may wish to place a locking stitch marker on the RS of the shawl, as the RS and WS look very similar.

The loose gauge lends the fabric drape, but the knitter can easily substitute a DK or worsted weight yarn for a slightly different fabric.
