Notes
Eirlys Shawl is worked from the top down and consists of alternating stripes and a slip stitch pattern which provides visual interest and texture. Four increases on each right side row - two occurring at each end and two down the center - create the triangle shape.
The size is very easy to customize. For a larger shawl you would work more of the stripe and slip stitch pattern repeats. For a smaller shawl you would work fewer pattern repeats.
