An old-fashioned triangle shawl with a secret; simplified short-row shaping curves it securely around your shoulders.
The simple lace border and subtle ‘collar’ are worked while you knit the shawl with an easily-memorized row repetition.
Because each sideways row is slightly different from its neighbors, pooling in hand-painted yarns is minimized.
If you use bulky or super bulky yarn you can complete it with a few evenings in front of the tv; and when you are finished, you have a fully-reversible warm and cozy shawl to keep or gift to someone you love.
I have provided specific instructions for using fingering, sport/dk, worsted, Aran, bulky and super bulky yarns as well as guidelines for using whatever yarn you have on hand. As long as you have a relaxed tension with the needles you use, gauge is not crucial.

I was looking forward to an easy, useful project, but this just wasn't it -- easy, yes; useful, no. I'm working in Lindy Chain fingering on size 6 needles, as stated in the pattern. (I'm not a "tight" knitter, but no gauge is given, so I can't tell you how well my definition of "not tight" matches the pattern author's.) I worked exactly according to the instructions, but since I soon realized this shawl was going to be much, much smaller than the picture, I added 11 extra repeats of the lace pattern. I just got to the mid-point tonight, and even after my modifications, it's still too small; so now I'm trying to decide whether to finish it and give it away, or unravel it to reclaim the yarn. Very disappointed.
