It is not a scarf, it is not a shawl, it is just a simple little knitted thing in-between that can be easily knitted from one to infinite skeins of yarn.

This small scarf-like shawl is worked sideways in rows starting and ending at a narrow tip. The shawl is worked in garter stitch. Needed skills are therefore basically knitting a stitch, knitting two stitches together, and slipping stitches. The edges are worked as i-cords.
The shawl can be made from only one skein of yarn. The pattern allows for easy adaptation to knit it longer, shorter, wider or narrower from any desired amount of yarn

The sample size is knitted from one skein of DK weight blue Bluefaced Leicester yarn and measures 140 x 24 cm but the pattern can be adapted to various sizes, yarn weight, color depending on personal preferences.

This shawl is the simplified version of my One Skein Cheshire Cat Shawl I published two years ago. If you are looking for a Stockinette version with slipped stitch edges, try that one.
