The Olas shawl is an easy yet very interesting half-pi shawl pattern, worked flat from the top down. The combination of garter and mesh stitch, combined with playful short rows makes this shawl a great project to work on after a long day. Originally designed using three contrast colors, the pattern is highly adaptable to many more, making it a perfect candidate for some stash diving or to use up the bits of some left-over yarn.
