The beauty of a gently curving stitch pattern combine with strong diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines, for a
rectangular wrap based on a triangular shawl. The color changes of the gradient yarns are manipulated to illustrate the unusual shaping while still being allowed to naturally flow from one shade to the next.

Pattern Notes
This shawl is started like a typical top-down triangular shawl with a garter stitch tab and a central decrease spine. Stitches are then cast on for the first vertical lace side and short rows are combined with decreases, working the vertical lace and the garter stitch triangle at the same time. This is repeated on the second side and then all stitches are used along the top of the wrap for the upper border.
