This adorable shawl in three sizes (Petite/Medium/Tall) begins at the neck with a plaid motif which segues into a series of classic gansey knit/purl patterns; the hem is finished by a flirty ruffle. Easy-to-work motifs make this piece a good traveler or a great beginner shawl project. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
