Solid garter and delicate mesh panels ebb and flow in this half-pi shawl designed for mindless and mindful knitting. Garter around the neck keeps the chill off in spring and autumn, while the mesh keeps the shawl light enough to wear in summer. With only six increase rows, knitting goes by in a flash during the garter portions, yet you can savor the lace mesh sections.

At the end of each increase row, the last “YO” should be a backwards loop cast on.
