Super quick and easy shawl pattern

This easy pattern works up quickly, and uses only one skein of fingering weight yarn to make an airy little shawl with loads of drape and a modern geometric diamond design.  Because of the open mesh fabric, it makes a perfect accessory for any season.  It can be worn over the shoulders like a shawl, around the hips for a swimsuit cover-up, or my favorite, tied like a bandanna with the point in the front.  Instructions are provided for increasing the shawl’s size.

I’ve used Shalimar Paulie, but any of Shalimar’s beautiful fingering weight yarn are perfect. 

There are charted and written instructions.  Beading on the last row is optional. 
The pattern is appropriate for Experienced Beginners and above. 
US terminology is used.
