The inspiration for Piper’s Journey came when I needed a knitting project for travel. I wanted something simple that would require minimal attention. A bonus feature of this shawl is that an exact stitch count is not necessary when starting the lace border. It is easy to adjust the size of the shawl. Allow a little over one third of the total yardage for the border.

Piper’s Journey is a crescent-shaped shawl with long ends that can be wrapped or tied. The body of the shawl is simple garter stitch with a stretchy top edge. The crescent shape is made with increases that form a natural lacy border along the edge, making it the perfect project for travel knitting. When you arrive at your destination, you knit the easy lace border to make this practical shawl a little fancier.

As there have been many questions about the applied lace border I have produced a video tutorial available here.
