Tailwind is a triangular shaped shawl knitted from one corner to the other. Increases on every row and decreases on every other row forms a long and just a little bit asymmetrical triangle that will be perfect for
wrapping around your neck. An I-cord edging on both short sides will hide the colour changes and also gives the shawl a finished look.
Knitting from one corner to the other makes it possible to use any yarn you like and adjust the size after your amount of yarn, just bind off when you are happy with the size.
