Gentle: A Fully Reversible Shawl for Many Yarns

Gentle is now finished, and available as a PDF download on Ravelry (soon to be added to my Etsy store)
-An old-fashioned triangle shawl with a secret; simplified short-row shaping curves it securely around your shoulders.
-The simple lace border and subtle ‘collar’ are worked while you knit the shawl with an easily-memorized row repetition.
-Because each sideways row is slightly different from its neighbors, pooling in hand-painted yarns is minimized.
-If you use bulky or super bulky yarn you can complete it with a few evenings in front of the tv; and when you are finished, you have a fully-reversible warm and cozy shawl to keep or gift to someone you love.
-I have provided specific instructions for using fingering, sport/dk, worsted, Aran, bulky and super bulky yarns as well as guidelines for using whatever yarn you have on hand.

Perfect! I especially love the blue version. This is a really great, simple design, Diana. :-)
