This asymmetrical shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) is worked side to side in alternating bands of garter stitch and simple-to-work lace mesh. The pattern may be worked in any combination of natural shades and/or colors; the size is easily adjustible as well. The off-kilter progression of the striping allows the final fabric to drape into just the right folds without a lot of fuss. Its large size and light fabric offer plenty of options for arranging the shawl in a variety of ways. While shown here in fingering weight yarn, the design lends itself to any desirable yarn weight with an appropriate change in needle size.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yarn requirement.

Finished size 70(84) inches across top edge and 31 (39) inches along BO edge (washed and blocked)

Yarn requirements 225(375) yards EACH of color 1 (C1, light) and Color 2 (C2, dark)
