This shawl is worked from the top down with increases at the center back and each side. A marker will indicate the center back. Increases occur on every row.

The instructions are written to minimize the number of ends you need to weave in. Follow the directions for turning or not turning at the end of each row, carrying unused yarn up the side. Only cut yarn when directed to do so.
