Just a little bit of texture adorns this asymmetrical shawl, knit from side to side. The design consists of simple texture stitches, alternated with garter stitch, providing a good balance between mindless knitting and rows that require just a bit of attention.

Enjoyable for beginners with a little experience, and more advanced knitters as well. Adaptable for any gauge, the pattern will work best for yarns with very little color variation (too much variegation hides the beautiful texture).
