There are so many things to love about this shawl!! It is quick to make on larger needles. It is both mindless and fun. It is a great way to use some of those gorgeous self striping/gradient yarns available or to use leftovers. And finally the fringes give it a totally hip vibe that will jazz up any outfits!
It is also very easy to customize the size by simply knitting more or less rows.
