Welcome.  This is the pattern for the shawl featured in my November 7th Scope on Periscope. 

You can catch the taping here on my Youtube channel. 

You will need:

1 skein of worsted yarn
#8 knitting needles (or needles for guage of 4 stitches to the inch).
scissors
Tapestry needle.

This pattern is for a basic bias knit shawl with eyelets running along the edges. 

Cast on 4 stitches.

Knit one row.

*Turn and K2, YO, knit across the rest of the stitches*. Repeat from * to* until you have 5o stitches on the needle and what looks like half a square.  if you want it bigger, that's fine Keep going until the desired width is achieved.

Next row* K1, K2tog YO, K2tog, Knit across the rest of the stitches.* Repeat from * to * until you are back to just 4 stitches.  You will end up back with just 4 stitches.  Bind off final 4 stitches.

These directions are tried and true. The pattern will work up quickly. Consider it a weekend or two weekend project depending on how fast you knit.  I don't recommend trying to speed up the process by using a bulky yarn as the drape won't be fluid.
