This design is  inspired by the book “Diez Mujeres” (Ten Women), written by Marcela Serrano.

The shawl does feature nine different motifs, each of them connected to the other by the same lace motif (the tenth).
It is worked sideways starting with a few sts from the top corner, it does have an asymmetric triangular shape.
