This pattern is a narrow triangular shawl that looks like a scarf. It has a border that is knit at the same time as the shawl and, due to the triangular shape, you will be able do maximize the amount of yarn used and avoid leftover yarn. The entire shawl is knit holding two strands of lace weight yarn; the triangle is knit in garter stitch and the border is knit in fisherman’s rib and slipped stitches. It will grow lengthwise until you have used half of the weight of your yarn; from then on you will work decreases until the wings are symmetrical.
At least 100g/874yards of lace weight yarn held double (on my sample I used Oxalis by Garna colorway Gråbrun)
