Halft is a simple shawlette worked from side to side, designed to use up most of your skein. Weigh it at the start and increase until you’re halfway through, then decrease. Halft is the Icelandic word for half.

This shawl is knit from one end to the other. Weigh your yarn at the beginning, knit the increase portion of the shawl until you have used half (or just a little slightly less) of the yarn, then begin decrease portion. For this purpose, a scale which measures grams is best. Sample used 95 grams. You may knit this shawl with any yarn, at any gauge. The secret remains, just weigh it!
