Grab your favorite color of Shawl in a Ball by Lion brand to create this fun shawl that looks like it’s full of tiny ladders. All you need is one ball to make this pretty triangle. The pattern is a super-simple 2 row repeat, so once you get the hang of it, it’s a great project to travel with, or to just sit and make while watching TV or chatting with friends. Use more or less yarn to make it larger or smaller.
