Merging Ripples Shawl
Pattern download also includes directions for Sideways Ripples Shawl.
This shawlette is worked from the bottom up and is shaped with decreases & short rows. The shawl is constructed in a way to achieve a nice half circular shape in a concentric manner. Work wraps together with wrapped stitches when you come to them. When you encounter a wrapped stitch when you k2tog, you still need to hide the wrap by lifting it and working it together with the wrapped stitch and next stitch, essentially working a k3tog.
