Reflecting Windows is knitted from one tip to the other. It is reversible: the same on both sides and symmetrical from side to side and end to end. It does not curl and it has a great texture. It is a relaxing knit that is soon memorized. Reflecting Windows can be a long lace scarf, or more shawl or stole-like in shape.

It is knit sideways in one piece. Sideways shawls have the advantage of using up almost all of a luxurious skein or two: weigh your yarn at the outset, and knit until you have used almost half of your yarn. That is the midpoint of your shawl. Now knit the other half with the remaining yarn.

Reflecting Windows is modifiable; make it as wide and long as you like. Use whatever yarn and needle size you like. It incorporates a very open version of the Roman Stripe stitch pattern and works best with larger needles and aggressive blocking. For me, the pattern works great with fingering weight yarn and 4.5 mm (7) needles. But your experience may vary!
