The top edge of the two color Ziggity shawl curves slightly up at the center back to give added protection to the neck on cold days. The bottom edge has a gentle curve which may be blocked to soft points as shown or with a straight edge.
Simple garter stitch gives way to a lively zig-zag lace pattern. Experiment with color - try working each section of the zig-zag in a different yarn, or work the garter stitch in a variegated yarn and the lace in a solid. The more adventuresome may even want to try two different colorways of self striping yarn. For a more understated look a single solid color will make an elegant shawl for a more formal occasion.
Ziggity may be worn tossed casually around the neck like a scarf, draped over the shoulders as a shawl or even wrapped multiple times around the neck with the ends tied and tucked under as a cowl. Have fun experimenting with multiple ways to style this shape
17 sts & 40 rows = 4" in garter stitch- blocked, always take the time to check gauge
