Shawl is knit on the bias, starting in one corner, and increasing on every right-side row. It is knit even through the body, then decreased to the point on the far end. The oriel stitch used in this design is very old. It’s evidently named for an architectural element of the same name found in Gothic revival structures in the United Kingdom. In architecture, an oriel is a bay window that projects from an upper floor that is supported from below with a bracket or corbel. Unlike a bay window, it does not itself extend to the ground.
