Pattern Notes

This shawl is worked from the top down, starting with a tab cast-on. The first part of the shawl is worked in the contrast colour and shaped like a half-pi shape, with increases in the eyelet rows.
The body of the shawl is then worked in short row wedges. Width is added to the shawl with extra increases placed in the eyelet rows to create a small shawl with a lovely wearable shape.
The edge is worked in pretty eyelet stripes with a thin garter border to finish.
