￼This is a super light-weight, fluffy shawlette with a hint of ruffley goodness to step it up a notch. This shawlette is plain yet flouncy... You can stuff it in your pocket when you don't need it, and pull it out easily when you do - just shake it out a bit and it opens up beautifully.
There are two options in this pattern: you can choose to bind off directly after the ruffle, or knit for another few increase repeats - each gives a very different look.
Honestly, for this shawl, gauge is even less important than usual for a shawl. Basically, you want a ginormous gauge on the US17 and a smaller gauge on the US10.
