Falling Leaves Shawl, by Fiddlesticks Knitting, is designed to be knit with easy-care Organic cotton. A shrinkage of about 12% has been factored into the design and final measurements.
It starts with a cast on at the bottom edge with larger needles, then as you work your way up the shawl, smaller needles are used while the rows become shorter and faster to work. At the end, just weave in a few loose ends and machine wash and dry!
