I designed this shawl to use up small bits of leftover yarn by working a bottom-up piece that leaves the yarn ends knotted together at the end to be worked into the fringe later, so they don’t have to be woven in.

The simply named Scrappy Knit Shawl gets its shape by working a yarn over increase 1 stitch from the edge on both sides of every row. It’s got a pretty dang LONG wingspan, reaching around 95” on the longest side! You can modify this shawl to be wider (from edge to triangle tip) by doing the YO increases only every other row until you get the size you like :)
