This was my first Israeli project. After we came here we discovered that our coats were way too warm and bulky to wear. At the same time we needed an extra layer to wear because the weather changed rapidly. This Raglan Shawl was a perfect solution. And it does not interfere with my DD playing and running around because it is held securely by nice fat ties.You can make it as long or as short as you want. In my case I only had 6 skeins of yarn, so I was limited in how long I could make it. It turned out to be an ideal length for my DD #2.
