This shawl is cast-on in the center using a provisional method, and worked using short rows to build wedge-shaped blocks in alternating colors.

ERRATA:
Page 3, following the conclusion of the center MC slice, layout has omitted the first CC wedge. Instructions should read:

Work first half of Contrast Wedge #1:
Join CC.
Setup row (WS): p7 (yes, purl the garter edging stitches in this row), pm; purl to end of row, again purling through the garter edging at the hem. This keeps the color transition smooth and leave out the bi-color bumps that happen when changing colors in garter st.
Row 1 (RS): k2, ssk, k to m. Remove m, w&t.
Row 2 (WS): p14, pm, p to last 3 sts, k3.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 six more times, leaving marker aside after final repeat: 123 sts rem.
Work second half:
Setup row 1 (RS): k2, ssk, k to wrapped st, k7, w&t.
Setup row 2 (WS): p to last 3 sts, k3.
Row 1 (RS): k2, ssk, k to first wrapped st, k14, w&t.
Row 2 (WS): P to last 3 sts, k3.
NOTE: When instructed to work a certain number of stitches past a wrapped stitch – as in Row 1 above – the stitch count always includes the wrapped stitch.
Work rows 1 & 2 five more times. When wedge is complete, yarn is located at the lower hem of shawl. Cut yarn: 116 sts.
