Old Salt is a lace shawlette, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. It starts out as a striped triangle knit flat and transitions to a cowl in the round. With both charts and written instructions, knitters will be able to choose their most comfortable way to follow the pattern. Perfect way to knit a shawl that will stay where you want it on your neck.
