This reversible shawl starts at the bottom edge with a double knit motif inspired by the Manhattan Bridge. The rest of the shawl is worked in garter stitch that quickly decreases to give a V-shape that sits comfortably on your back.
The pattern is written for fingering to DK weight yarn. The size of the shawl remains the same. The number of stitches depends on the gauge with your particular yarn.
Detailed instructions for a gauge swatch are included detailing how to work the double knit section.

I'm a lifelong crafter, but settled on knitting in university when I wanted sweaters but couldn't afford to buy them. My first knitting love was lace. I'm sure I'll keep returning to lace, but there are so many other fun techniques to explore as well!
