The Rumpelstiltskin shawl is based on a traditional knitting motif. It knits up super quick in worsted weight yarn creating a warm, yet not too heavy fabric. It also lends itself perfectly to using alternative yarn weights and size adjustments. The pattern contains detailed instructions on how to adjust the pattern for different yarn weights and amounts of yarn.
