This shawl is designed for knitting with handspun yarn which is often an odd amount ofyardage. By finding the center of your yarn, you can knit to the middle of the pattern, then turn around and go the other way. This also avoids the dreaded never-ending bind off. You cast on two stiches, and you bind off two stitches.
I also call it the Nail Biter because, by design, you should have little yarn left by the time you are done. If you've measured your center correctly, you'll spent the last quarter of the shawl worried you'll run out but then you'll be just fine. I had less than 5 yards left when I completed the shawl pictured here.
This shawl can be knit with ANY yardage on ANY size needles. As long as you mark the center of your yarn, you'll have enough to complete the pattern.

Color used in the sample is no longer available; we have made a similar color suggestion in the yarn calculator below.
