This shawl is a free pattern on Ravelry called Pimpelliese. It is knit from point to point and is really simple! The pattern is done in 'fingering' weight yarn (4ply) but I had this hand painted cotton in DK after I pulled back a previous shawl I had made up myself and fallen out with. Just divide your yarn in 2 and increase until half is used then decrease using the other half. Done! This took me 10 days to knit in my spare time after work.
