This is a triangular shaped shawl, worked in one piece, from the top down. Casting on requires using the garter tab cast on method, for which I have provided a tutorial link.

Instructions for this shawl are provided in both written and charted format. The chart is easy to read and ideal for knitters who haven’t followed a chart before.

This shawl is perfect for beginners to shawl knitting and also lace knitting too.
The design for this shawl was inspired by my Skoosh! Shawl. After completing Skoosh!, I wanted to design a second shawl that would include a little bit of lace pattern. The thought of knitting lace can be slightly daunting to most new knitters, but this is a very straight forward lace pattern to follow: there are only four rows in this pattern repeat and only one of these four is a lace pattern row.
I’m also hoping to help knitters understand how triangular shawls develop with this very simple yet elegant shawl pattern.

If you have any questions, problems or just want to join in with others who are knitting this shawl, pop over to my Shuttermonkey Designs Group here on Ravelry.
