A shawl done in linen stitch, to reduce pooling and to create a smooth fabric. It’s really simple, and is very easy to modify. In fact, you’ll have to use some of your judgment no matter what, as it’s more of a recipe than a strict pattern. You’ll want to knit it with larger needles than you normally would for whatever yarn you choose, unless you want a very stiff fabric. The bind-off row is not normal, because I fiddled with it to make it mimic the other two sides of the triangle you’re creating.
