Princess and The Pea
knitCompanion set-ups can be purchased (in the knitCompanion store) for those who like to use knitCompanion, but do not wish to set up their own charts.
Princess and The Pea is a triangular-ish shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked on the both wrong and right sides, but it is easy enough to memorize and knit. Because of the shape, this shawl is very easy to wear and stay put on the shoulder. Pattern includes charts and written directions. If you would like to add beads to your shawl, instructions are included as to where to place the beads.
