Plus Copper is a glorious lace triangular shawl with a double sided memorable stitch pattern. Started with a garter tab cast on. Increased on the centre spine and borders to make the triangle shape. Use a soft drapey Sport weight yarn to make the most of this cosy shawl. For the smaller version, adding tiny tassels around the trim adds weight to the shawl and makes it look super cute, as well as using up the spare yarn.

Plus Copper is cast on with a small garter tab, then grows into the triangle shape by increasing sts down the centre spine and at the borders using yarn overs.
You should start introducing the lace pattern when there are 7 stocking stitch sts and a purl stitch spare to complete one half of the lace pattern.
