This square shawl has a center garter stitch panel knit on the bias, from corner to corner. The gradient lace edging is then picked up and knit in the round. With its generous size, wear it as a cozy shawl or use it as a baby blanket. Or try using a variety of yarns to change the size of the shawl if you’d like a lap blanket, or something more open and lacier.

Designed especially for Plucktober 2015, please check out The Plucky Knitter Ravelry Group in October for the official SAL with prizes!
