This shawl begins at one tip and is worked side-to-side. German short-row wedges along the top edge of the shawl cause the direction of the knitting to shift from perfectly horizontal at first to ever increasing biased angles. I-cord edging and an i-cord bind off lend a smooth finish to the garter stitch fabric.

This shawl was designed in collaboration with JuJu Knits in Fort Worth, Texas, using their shop exclusive colorway, Lady Bird, from MadelineTosh. Both the colorway and shawl were inspired by the former first lady, Lady Bird Johnson, and her Texas wildflower legacy.
