Triangles mirrored make diamonds. Diamonds stacked make columns. Columns of diamonds and off-set triangles intermingle and play across a crescent of a field. And as they play, they all see themselves in the other. Because triangles mirrored make diamonds, and diamonds halved make triangles.

Knit in one piece from the top down, this shawl begins by casting on 11 stitches at the back of the neck and increasing eight stitches every other row to shape this shawl into a crescent. Finally, an eyelet-increase row is worked just before the bind off to ensure that a thorough blocking is possible.

This pattern is only charted. Though written directions may become available at a future date.
