Looking to find an EASY shawl or wrap pattern to knit for MIL for her birthday in March. Not to be TOO picky, but I'd like to find a pattern that is fast, easy, and on bigger needles size 10 or larger. :aww:

I did a really easy garter stitch triangular shawl (http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii281/kcristeen/IMG_2863.jpg) for my grandmother for Christmas on size 11s with 2 skeins of alpaca laceweight.
CO 3, knit two rows.
*K1, YO, K to end of row. *repeat once.
*K2, YO, K to end of row. *repeat once
K3, YO, K to end of row. Repeat this row until you have reached the desired size.
I added a matching eyelet row at the top so that I had eyelets all the way around... when I got towards the end I did K3, YO, K, *YO, K2tog, K1*, K the last 4 or 5 stitches, depending on the stitch count. Then I knit another 3 rows and bound off.
