The On a slant shawl. Bias and straight knitting in a pleasing arrangement of colors and textures. There are garter stitches, eyelets, increases and decreases, a pretty lace section and even a fun tassel to add extra flair and fun. It makes for a very enjoyable knit.

The shape is a bit unusual being rounded at one end, with a tip on the other side and of course the optional tassel.

This shawl looks great whether you knit it in one color or 8!
