Short row shawls are all the rage, but most are worked from the bottom up. This limits the flexibility that is one of my favorite aspects of standard top-down shawls; the ability to change the size and border as you know how much yarn you’ll have at the end.

This shawl starts with a garter stitch body shaped into a triangle with short rows (no wraps!), then moves into a mesh lace border with a fun bindoff. Make the shawl larger or smaller by changing the number of stitches in the body and/or the number of rows in the border.

The name comes from the not-quite camouflage effect of the Hummingbird colorway used in the sample, which gives me the feel of hiding in plain sight in the urban jungle!
