Pattern Notes: You can use any weight yarn and resize the shawl as desired. It is recommended that you use a yarn with a lot of drape (such as silk, alpaca or bamboo) and match it with a hook, slightly larger than normally recommended to create drape in the fabric. To use up a special skein divide the skein into two evenly sized balls and continue increasing until the first ball has been used up.
