I love knitting shawls, but I can never figure out how to wear them. I always end up tying them around by neck and subsequently look like some weird cowgirl wearing a lace bandana. Now that I have discovered short row shawls, I am no longer having this problem. I can easily wear my shawl as a scarf or wrap it around my shoulders. Because the wingspan is typically longer in a short row shawl, I now have lots more shawl wearing option. The Any Way You Want It shawl takes it to another level. With a very long wingspan, this shawl gives me more options than ever before, which is good. The "weird cowgirl look" is generally not accepted here.

Gauge is not critical in this pattern, but a
different gauge will affect yardage and size of shawl.
