My favorite part of knitting a sock is the turning the heel. I love the magic of using short rows to create the proper shape for your foot. Using that same technique for a shawl makes sense to me. By working short rows, you end up with a beautiful crescent-shaped shawl that can be worn a variety of ways. Aullwood is a short row shawl, started at the lace edge and worked upwards. Wear it as a shawl, wear it as a scarf…the choice is yours!
