A flirty triangle scarf or shawlette in three sizes (mini/petite/tall), worked from hem to neck, with a deep openwork border of branch and bud motifs. The easy-to-work stitch patterns and wrong-side rest rows make this piece a great first shawl project, or a fun, relaxing weekend traveler for experienced knitters. Its ornate appearance belies the simplicity of its construction; this piece knits up quickly to make a beautiful accessory or last-minute gift.
