This is a lightweight shawl that packs pretty well (just a few creases). It's knit primarily in striped stockinette but there's a pretty little side panel of leaves along the edge. The best part about this pattern is that you do NOT to pick up stitches! The side panel is a simple but ingenious extension of the striped stockinette section. It's easy to get confused when first casting on. Please note that the cast on and several rows thereafter are just the side panel. I included a pic of the cast on edge in hopes that might be helpful.
