Please note: Row 2 of the Shawl Body ends with “m1, k3.” It should read “m1, k2.”

It’s also been pointed out that m1 on the purl side should be m1p, and m1 on the knit side should be m1k.

Skewed is Tipped Shawl’s bolder cousin: the colors are brighter, the center spine is more than off-center, the garter ridges don’t quite line up, and instead of ribbing, a vertical welt finishes off the bottom edge.

Worked top-down in Stockinette stitch with asymmetrical garter ridges, the arc of the shawl creates a shape that stays on your shoulders but has a little flutter in the back. The welt edging is worked with short rows to accommodate the curve of the bottom edge.

The body of the shawl takes about 219 yards of worsted weight yarn, and the edging takes about 350 yards.

The finished measurements are: wingspan, approx. 45”; back length along spine: approx. 19”.
