Named for the little shore birds that scurry with invisible legs and fly together in cloud formation over the coastline of New England, this shawl is worked on the bias in a completely reversible rib and eyelet pattern- there is no right or wrong side.

The Plover Shawl is asymmetrical and is what I call and one-and-all-size shawl, it can be worked to any size desired just cast on and go until you run out of yarn or follow the patterns prescribed number of repeats for approximately the same dimensions listed below.
