This quick shawlette is knit all in one piece.
Beginning with three stitches, the main body is knit in a lacy ribbed stitch from the top down. The lower edging is then worked perpendicularly to the body. No bind off is required because the live stitches are consumed as the edging is knit on.
Finally, stitches are picked up along the top edge and then the upper edging is worked in a tulip lace pattern.
The neck is bound off with Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off so that it will lie smoothly around the neck.

Optional ribbon ties may be added.

My mom taught me how to knit, sew and crochet when I was a girl. It's all part of who I am.
