Half sweater shawl
I am searching for a pattern for a half sweater shawl. These were popular in Florida awhile back. It looks like the back of a sweater with the arms at the top used to tie the shawl. It is not a large shawl and is great to throw over your shoulders in an air conditioned room that may be too chilly (church, restaurant, etc.). Anyone know where I can find a pattern for this? Thanks

Does it actually have arms in it or is just flaps?

No sleeves, just long strips like half a sleeve that can be tied in the front.

That's a cape(let). No I've seen what she's talking about and it really is like half a sweater with sts cast on for sleeves.

No, I've seen the pattern. It's exactly one half of a sweater. Worked from the bottom up, sts cast on to make sleeves, then up to the 'shoulder seam' and cast off. That's it, it's a T.

Here's are some old posts from Threads forum with pictures about two-thirds of the way down the page. You might try email as suggested but the post is old and you'll have to wait after registering as new members can't send email.
I think it would be just as easy to make up a pattern. Figure out the size rectangle you would like and the length of sleeve or tie that you want at the top and knit away. Do some st in the body or pattern on the edges so that you don't get curling on the rectangular back.
