I created this pattern for those who really like the Weaver's Wool Mini shawl but do not knit. The inspiration for this pattern is here: http://www.knitlist.com/2003/minishawl.htm
I really like the size of this little shawl because it is perfect for those individuals who are wheelchair bound or bed ridden. It covers the shoulders without excess fabric to get caught in chair wheels or bunch up in the bed. It also makes it very easy for care givers to minister to the elderly since their arms are easily accessible.
