This shawl has three sections: first, you work a kite-shaped section with increases in the middle and decreases on both edges. Second, you continue with half of the stitches to form an asymmetric triangle by decreasing on one side and increasing on the other. Third, you pick up stitches along the side of the second section and join them with the remaining stitches of the first section. The third section continues the shapes of the first and second section. Throughout the shawl, you will be striping with two colors: MC and one of the CCs. The CC changes in each section.

This shawl lets you play with colors and the interesting shape makes knitting fun!
