The Five Points Shawl is composed of five sections, beginning with the center piece. Stitches for the side triangles are picked up along each side of the center, then stitches for the wings are picked up along one side of each side triangle. The yarn used in this shawl is an all-new cashmere blend developed by North Light Fibers with collaboration from designer Norah Gaughan and Interweave Knits editor Lisa Shroyer.
