My favorite accessory for fall is a huge shawl, a shawl so big that it can be worn as a coat. I wanted to play with textures just the way leaves fallen from the trees would crisp under our steps.
I also wanted it to be fun to make for, yet a very feminine result. I wanted it to be a shawl that can be worn in the city but, also, for a walk in the country. I decided to knit in a warm yarn but with a large gauge to give the shawl a lot of drape and lightness.

FastLane is an asymmetric triangle shawl worked in one piece, back and forth from left to right with fingering weight yarn. Instructions are both on charts and written row by row. The pattern comes in 2 sizes.
