Vox Populi, which means ‘the voice of the people’, is a triangular shawl, worked from the wingspan down. It begins with a garter tab cast on and increases are worked on both the right and wrong side of the shawl. This shawl uses two colors, alternated every four rows throughout the body of the shawl, with the non-working yarn carried up the side. A wide band of garter stitch gives this shawl a nice, squishy edge.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
