The wide swath of texture that would normally reside above the “trim” now serves as a frame above and below, providing an expanse to showcase beautiful yarn. It isn’t quite garter, there’s one return row that has a wee bit of variation to keep things interesting. But in all the simple elements of this shawl conspire to be more than the sum of its parts.
I chose one stunning skein of malabrigo Mechita in the color Lava to see what size a one skein, fingering weight, shawl would yield, but you could definitely use more yardage and yield a larger shawl. You could also substitute in another weight, just make sure to use a needle size that gives you nice drape in your fabric. Knit until you almost run out of yarn and then bind off.
