This shawl was inspired by the many triangular “virus” shawls on Ravelry. Triangular shawls never seem to behave when I wear them – they bunch up, slide off and do all sorts of other things that frustrate me. This semi-circular shawl has multiple increase points to allow it to sit on the shoulders without slipping. It can be worn with the middle point centered in the back, or turned with the middle point aligned with your arm and one edge flipped over your shoulder.

While the stitches are not complicated, you do need to pay attention to the repeats and where the counts increase.

Thank you to the wonderful testers:
