  • This shawl is worked flat from the top down with increases worked along each edge and down the center spine.
  • The solid-color stripes are worked in garter stitch; the colorwork stripes are worked in mosaic knitting.
  • Slipped stitches along both edges create a knitted cord edging, and the shawl is finished with an optional Knitted Cord Bind Off and three optional tassels, one for each corner of the shawl.
