This shoulder shawl is the third in a series of shoulder coverings meant to provide warmth and a sense of caring to its wearer. I want to dedicate this entire series to a very dear friend of more than 30 years, who passed away just a couple of days ago. She was a matriarch, a very dear woman, who thought of others before she thought of herself, like so many knitters I know. She will be sorely missed by her large family and all of her friends.

This shawl is a rather simple shawl, knit from the neck to the bottom garter band. Each segment of the shawl is one eighth of a circle. There are 2 increases per segment every 4 rows of knitting. Barbara G. Walker’s Treasury, Volume 4, is the source for calculations for this shoulder shawl.
Stitches for a collar are picked up and knitted for a collar. Its method of construction is good for a beginner and also for a more experienced knitter who wants a good TV or travel project.
