"Pleat Up!" is a triangular shawl knit from side to side on the bias in one piece. It’s simple, classic and clean look is broken up by textural elements while shape-changing worked-in pleats account for the slight curvature at the nape side, making this shawl wrap nicely around the shoulders. Especially cozy when knit from a very soft yarn such as the one used for the pictured sample shawl!
