The Brick Wall Shawl is a warm and cozy, large, triangular shawl featuring a simple repeating slip-stitch pattern in four colours. It is finished with a lace border on all edges with a subtle picot bind-off.

Construction is bottom-up, starting at the centre point of the triangle, working upwards to the top edge. The lace border on the top edge is knitted as a continuation of the shawl. The lace border on the remaining sides is added afterwards, picking up the stitches along those edges.

This pattern is worked flat, from written instructions and is suitable for intermediate knitters.
