Worked from the top down this shawl has 2 slanted armholes so that when you are not wearing it as a chunky scarf you can put your arms in the holes and it will keep you cosy and warm. OR tip it upside down and repeat. You will be delighted with the transformation. Pull the ends and wrap it around your waist and secure with buttons if desired. This unusual construction is easy to master and becomes a no brainer. It is the perfect TV watching project. Use any yarn from a fingering weight(4 ply) to a DK weight(8 ply). The choice is yours.
