When faced with a knitting deadline and a discerning recipient, reach for something unique, like this asymmetric-in-a-different-way shawlette.

This pattern has directions for working the shawl in either fingering weight yarn OR aran/bulky weight yarn. Both result in a shawl roughly the same size, and notes for adjusting size are provided.
