Pattern Notes
The shawl is knit on the bias sideways starting with the few cast-on stitches. You begin at the right tip of the shawl with the set of increases that are incorporated into a brioche stitch pattern. The shaping is done by repeating the pattern of increases that runs along the right edge of the knitted fabric.
The pattern includes BOTH charted AND written instructions.
