This dainty shawl sits perfectly around the neck and over the shoulders because the top edge of the shawl turns through a 270° angle at the back of the neck. Instead of being a triangle, the shawl is 3/4 of a square, with one corner of the square forming the point at the bottom of the back:

It is a seamless knit worked outwards from the neck, where it begins with Judys Magic Cast-On. The pattern includes a tutorial for this as well as for making ‘nupps’, the dense bobble-like stitches that feature abundantly in the shawl’s border.
