The shawl may look complicated, but it’s really not! The “wings” are worked with a 4-row repeat, while the central part features the increases that shape it. For the dark color (DC), I used solid colored yarn, but you can also use gradient yarn, hand-dyed yarn, etc. The edges of the shawl are finished with stockinette stitch, which makes the fabric curl and look something like I-cord.
