The Turbulence Shawl is a great choice for knitting on the go. The garter-stitch body is easily shaped, and the lace border draws inspiration from winds sweeping through the clouds. The triangle is formed as you knit the piece from the bottom up.
This shawl is worked from the bottom up. A triangle is formed as you knit, then the stitches in the middle of the shawl are bound off and each side is continued to create the long wingspan. The cast-on stitches at the bottom of the shawl are grafted together. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
