This is a Jumbo Striping of Queen in the Lucky Penny colour way, which was a club colour way.

My hipster brother-in-law asked for a “man-shawl”, so I found this pattern. Will see how it looks as I begin to knit it up!

Interesting - the make one stitch is the EZ-favored stitch to increase. Great to learn. http://chezlizzie.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-backward-loop-...

Well, I like it! It’s smallish, but I think will work well with a leather jacket and the ends knotted. I ran out of yarn (even though I weighed it, argh), but used a bit of extra almost-matching.
