Kith Shawl - a knitting pattern
The shawl begins at the top center and is worked outwards to the border with one wing asymetrically longer than the other. It is worked primarily in alternating 2-row stripes of Garter stitch with six inserts of a third color, which are shaped with short rows and give the shawl even more asymmetry. The border is also worked in the third contrasting color.

Or 3 colors of any other fingering weight yarn with similar yardage, which gives you the correct gauge.
