notes
Just south of the Texan fields where the goats and sheep that supply Piper’s fibers graze, once flourished several rich Mesoamerican cultures. One of the best-known imprints these civilizations left behind were the stairstep temples made famous by the Mayans and Aztecs. A distinctive shape that lends itself well to knitted shawl construction.

The shawl is worked from the tip up, with a 5 stitch-wide garter stitch border. Increases are done via yarnovers at the start and end of each RS lace row, as well as with backward loop cast on sts in the garter stitch between lace sections.
