This simple, elongated triangle shawl is deep enough to cover your back, while still draping securely around your shoulders and neck. Pair a variegated yarn with two coordinating semisolid yarns for subtle stripes or with two contrasting yarns for wild stripes.

Size: 70” wide x 23” deep at center back; lightly blocked.
This pattern is easy to resize, simply repeat sections 1-4 until the desired size is reached.

Errata: A new version was uploaded 10/18/17 correcting two small errors. In Section 2, work with color C for the next 16 rows. In Section 2, Rows 2, 8, 14, 16 should read “K3, p to last 3 sts, k3”.
