This triangular shawl starts from the bottom and the traveling slipped stitches create the flowing lines that merge to form a cityscape-like design, reminiscent of a city of steel skyscrapers, fighting each other in a desperate plea to dominate the sky and to create a name for themselves.

The pattern is available in both charted and written forms and BOTH are included! :D
