SOS Shawl

SOS is a half circle shawl that begins with a gentle curve at the back of the neck, and expands in both length and width according to the taste of the knitter. Designed to be knit in any yarn weight from Lace to Aran, the main body of the shawl is worked in a simple but pretty lace pattern that is easily memorized but more interesting than plain stockinette. The bind off is non-traditional, worked as a continuation of the edging.
