Portico, aka the TTL Mystery Shawl 2012 is a lovely top down, half circular shawl with a wide border of leaf lace that increase in size to the bottom edge.

I used Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2 Ply and made the small size. I think my colorway might be exclusive to Purl Soho, because I don't see it on the Jade Sapphire site. The pattern also gives instructions for a larger version, but be forewarned it uses a lot of yarn. You'll need almost double the amount of yarn for those last 40 rows.
