A slender shawl worked from side to side with gentle shaping that gives the shawl a slightly wider center that tapers off at both ends.

The shawl is quite slender – maybe it could be called a fat scarf. Either way, it’s an easy modification to make the shawl thicker by upping the frequency of the increases and decreases. Since the edge of the shawl is stockinette (with a garter stitch border), I did experience a little bit of rolling, but with a good blocking I don’t think it’s too much of a problem. One of the things I really like about the arrow motif is that you can see the shape of the arrow – either the point of the arrow or the indentation of the “feather” – at the ends of the shawl.
