This Long Tail Shawl is a fun shawl that works up fairly quickly! The increase and decrease are placed in strategic places in the project giving it its unique long tail shape. The shawl widens towards giving it an asymmetrical shape and a variety in styling through the open stitches.

- The pattern is relatively easy; just pay close attention to the increases and decreases.
- To help you keep track of increase and decrease rows, odd rows have an increase in the 2nd to last st of the row, and even rows (with the exception of Row 2) have an increase in the beginning and a decrease at the end of the row.
- Once you get the rhythm you will understand what I mean. Stitch count will be indicated in <> at the end of some rows just to help you keep track of where you are.
