Leaf press shawl
Leaf Press Shawl is cast on at one wing tip with a few stitches and then simply knit into a widening triangle. This gives it the slightly asymmetrical shape that is so easy to wear. The leafy lace border is easy and the colorful stripes add interest for the knitter. No picking up stitches, everything is knit in one piece and the two colors are carried so not a lot of ends to weave in later. Knit sideways to the desired size, and you are done! Make a shawl, a scarf, any size desired.
