The Agatha Shawl is knit sideways on the bias. It is knitted back and forth in rows, mainly in garter stitch stripes with a wide border in mosaic knitting as the eye-catching feature. To add additional interest to the knitting and the look, small mosaic insertions are added to the garter stitch stripes given intervals.

You can choose to work the mosaic patterns from the charts or the written instructions.
