From the pattern description: A wonderfully simple and fun shawl that is shaped like a giant butterfly. Knitted in a 3-ball garter stitch technique from the top-down, this is a great pattern for using a mix of novelty and stash yarns. Shaping is done with simple yarn overs, and creates the traditional Faroese-style shawl with center back panel, side front panels, and shaped shoulders. The elongated front panels allow you to wear this shawl in lots of ways, including tied around the back.

Knitting starts with just a few stitches at the top and works downward - easily adjusts to other sizes by knitting to length desired, and other weights of yarn with corresponding adjustment in needle size and yardage.
