In the game of marbles, a taw is one of your shooters—simply put, it is your favorite marble—the one you use to shoot the most often and the one you don’t want to lose to an opponent!

This shawl, too, will be a favorite. Long, shallow, and slightly askew this piece will be your constant.
The mesh interior will add just the right amount of warmth and the no fuss edging is simple enough to add to or not distract from your outfit.

Stitched end to end with the lace edge being worked at the same time as the body allows for this shawl to be lengthened or shortened easily.
Appealing to crafters of all levels, the 4 row repeat is easily memorized with just enough involvedness to be interesting.

Note: The shawl is a touch longer on the decrease than the increase, plan your yarn accordingly.
