Single-ply fingering weight yarn knit on larger needles produces a lovely gauzy fabric that makes this a great summer shawl - perfect for a walk on the beach in the early morning or evening.

Most of the shawl is plain stockinette with decreases at each side and in the middle, 1 row out of 20 has short-rows and requires a bit of attention! Knit from the bottom up, you pick up speed as you go and there is no long cast off – just one final double decrease and you’re done!

Knit it as shown in 3 colors or use as many as you like. The version shown used 420 yards of 1 color, 310 yards of another, and 110 yards for the accent stripes.

If you’ve never done or are not comfortable with short-rows, try my free Lizard Ridge dishcloth pattern as a practice piece. Lizard Ridge Dishcloth
