My daughter sent me a picture of shawl that she saw at a store and asked me to make it for her. I searched for a similar pattern but I was not able to find the right one so I decide to try it on my own and I came up with this pattern. It's a very cozy shawl that works well on cold winter nights at home or for a night out on the town.
Any type of bulky yarn - I used 100% Alpaca for mine
Needle size 15
Cast on 1,
Row 1:Right side K1 f&b
Row 2: Purl
Row 3:K1 f&b, K1
Row 5:K1 f&b,K1,K1 f&b - So the first and last stitch of the row should be K1 f&b. The middle stitches should all be just K1.
Continue with Row 4 and Row 5 until you reach the perfect size.

I saw this pattern in a knitting store in Chicago. I really liked it, so I got the yarn, the red one is 100% cashmere and the pink one is 80% Alpaca/20% wool. This was a very easy pattern to make, in total it took me about 2 hours to knitt. Its a great winter weather neck warmer as both materials are soft and super warm!!!
