This simple shawlette is great for using up "odds and ends" from your yarn stash. The crocheted button lets you wear it around your neck or shoulders easily (even if it's smaller than a typical shawl), and guarantees that your button matches your color choices. The size on this shawl can be adjusted by changing the weight of the yarn, changing the quantity of yarn, and/or working more or less repeats. Tips for adjusting size including selecting yarns and hooks are included in the pattern.
