This shawl is worked from the center, out to the border. The pattern increases every 6th row through in Chart B then every 4th row in Chart C.

The main pattern repeats 8 times per row. The pattern could be worked as few as 6 times per row or as many as 12 times per row to create a full circle. Eliminate the garter stitch edging if working a full circle with no split. The Set-up chart would need to be adjusted accordingly.

This shawl is shown in a DK weight yarn but the pattern is suitable for finer weight yarns as well, if a smaller shawl is desired. Choose a needle size that is suitable for that yarn weight.

The pattern is entirely charted with no row-by-row instructions.
