Simple, classic styling

This shawl/scarf has caught my eye several times in the #FreeYourSkeins2015 search. ‘Gravitate’ is an asymmetric, triangle shaped shawl which uses dropped stitches to create and airiness, without the need for any lace.

This pattern would be great in a complex, semi-solid yarn and is ideal for showing off a number of bases, particularly singles. The stitch pattern lends itself to a natural drape; accentuate this by using yarns with alpaca or silk content or add a little more structure with a tighter-spun BFL or merino blend.

What would you knit yours in?
