Pluma is a fun seamless shawl worked bottom-up in a modular fashion. It starts with one module and for all the others, stitches are picked and/or casted-on as you knit. Take your time choosing a special yarn - it might be rustic, hand-spun, variegated or simply a different color scheme to truly make the shawl your own.
