I love a shawl that is enjoyable to knit, filled with fun stitches, easy to memorize, not too hard but not too boring. For me, this half pi shawl fits the bill. It is suitable for an adventurous beginner or advanced beginner. Go for it!

Staged increases mean that the stitch count remains consistent within each stitch pattern, making it easy to memorize or make adjustments. Chose three of your favorite colors, dive in, and enjoy.
