Experience Level: Advanced Beginner

From laceweight to extra bulky, this pattern works with them all! Fresh Squeezed is an asymmetric triangular shawl with an eyelet-and-garter ridge stripe pattern. Beginning at the smallest point of the triangle, this shawl increases in length and width as you repeat the simple stitch pattern to your desired length. Slipped stitches up the sides create a tidy finished edge.
