Ippen has an unusual shape like U-turn on a street, hence the name. It is fully reversible because of the squares knit in stockinette und reverse stockinette stitch. This shawl stays on your shoulders when worn. It can complete your outfit with a modern and stylish accessory. Wrapped around your shoulders it hugs you and may replace a cardigan. A stripe along the whole length in a contrasting color adds interest to this basic patterned wrap.

The pattern is suitable for beginners and also for advanced knitters that enjoy a relaxed knit.
