A slightly asymmetrical reversible triangular shawl with a lovely river pattern running along one edge, accentuated by garter stitch in the main body of the shawl for cozy comfort and a soothing knit. Dense and warm in a heavier weight, or with a beautiful drape in a lighter
weight. As this shawl is cast on at one wing tip with a few stitches and knit in a widening triangle, it is easy to adjust to your desired size!
