Construction Notes
The Ebel shawl is worked flat from one tip to the other, gradually increasing at one edge every 4 rows until the widest point. The shawl is then worked straight before decreasing begins, with the decreasing mirroring the increase pattern. The rhythmic rows of garter stitch are interspersed with a number of stripe patterns, which create a relaxing but engaging knit. The longer shaped edge of the shawl is worked with a crochet bobble edging in a contrast yarn to finish.
