A simple garter-stitch triangle shawl, worked from the top down and trimmed with a pleated border. This flexible pattern can be worked larger for a full-sized shawl or smaller for a petite shawlette.

Knit in DK or fingering weight yarn, this shawl is the perfect companion on a cool spring evening or layered under a winter coat for fall.
