Oh what a tangled story some shawls tell. This one was inspired by several of my loves coming together at once. In this case a reference to the taxi driver in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, combined with Isadora Duncan’s love of shawls and drapes in her dancing led to the creation of this very stylized shawlette.

Isidore starts off like most other top down triangular shawls, with increases at the sides and along a center spine. Halfway down, the increases move away from the center, creating a shape for the shawl that is not a triangle, but rather something more visually interesting.

Many thanks to my tech editor, Amanda Woodruff, and to testers CarolSch, Minou, NanaRector, and Parallel.
