I wrote a pattern calculator for my Jenny Shawl.  It's easy to knit. Most of the shawl is knit in garter stitch, the trim is simple eyelets.  You can  knit it in your gauge using my calculator. (My version is knit using Taiga Alpaca.)  The calculator: http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/1924

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

You're welcome. The curved edges are easier than they look. You just switch from increasing 1 stitch ever two rows when you start to 2 stitches every two rows near finishing.  It curves on it's own!

Mine took me less than a week to knit. It's  nearly all garter stitch, so you can knit it in front of the tv!

I posted a pattern for a slightly different shawl: http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/1958

I call this one "The Maggie Shawl". It's also stockinette. The increases in the center use yarn overs, but otherwise, it's just garter stitch with a simple but decorative bind off.  (Also a "knit while watching TV" project.)

(The pattern is actually one of my "calculator" type patterns so you can get the direction for other lengths. It estimates yardage so you can budget.)
