The shawl is seamless and knitted top-down from the central neck stitches to the edge. The shawl is shaped as a triangle.
The sample shawl in the photographs was knitted with 3 repeats of the body pattern and after blocking was 160 cm (63 inches) for the straight edge on the top of the shawl and 65 cm (25.6 inches) for the height of the shawl at the center. You can easily make it bigger or smaller by adding or taking away pattern repeats. The shawl design is modular and border pattern can be started after desired number of the body pattern repeats is knitted.
