This is a Shawlette version of the Parasol Stole, with a single border and a gentle curve formed by the decreases that flow into the ribbing. A very quick & satisfying weekend knit.
There are both written and charted instructions. The chart is laid out in lots of sweet colours for your enjoyment and ease of knitting.
Please also [watch this video] for a demonstration of how to work the central decreases along the edge.
