I had some Kauni yarn left over from a Swallowtail shawl. I didn't have quite enough for another Swallowtail, so I looked around for another pattern that wouldn't require as much yarn. I found Zuzu's Petals by Carina Spencer. I would describe it as a cross between a cowl and a shawlette. You begin by knitting flat, and then join in the round. I added glass beads. The pattern provides two versions, a sport weight and worsted version. This project knits up very quickly. The worsted version could probably be completed in a few evenings of casual knitting. It's a great project if you have a single ball of worsted yarn that you don't know what to do with.
