This bottom-up shawl would have appealed to Marilla Cuthbert’s (of Anne of Green Gables) practical nature. You can work it in any weight of yarn and you can tailor the size to the amount of yarn you have on hand. I used a wool lace-weight yarn, which is what I imagined Marilla’s black lace shawl would have been made from.
It starts on a few stitches and grows until you cast off.
