Duin is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the top-down. The color work in the border is done with the mosaic slip stitch technique: only one color is worked at a time.

The shawl is started with a garter stitch tab. The body contains special shaping, which helps to avoid the “bump” in the upper edge of the shawl, so often present in crescent shawl designs. The instructions for the mosaic color work are provided both fully charted and written out.
