Little Green is a mini shawl designed to knit up in one fancy skein of yarn, making it a great souvenir knit, or a good use for solitary hanks of luxury lightweight yarns.

It takes only 412-440 yards to make, and has a button option to secure the ends.

This design uses the same offset point idea as the one in Isometric Screenshot, plus some new texture patterns and lateral braids! The yarn I used for the sample is pretty nice, but unfortunately seems to be discontinued; from experience, I think Malabrigo Yarn Mechita would be a nice substitute.
