Laser Tag is a triangular wrap with an easy short row design. It can be worked in two contrasting colors of yarn or each stripe can be worked in a different color. This pattern works well with yarn scraps and mini-skeins, each color stripe is designed to use less than 20g of yarn. The asymmetrical shaping helps this shawl hug your shoulders and stay put.
