This shawl is constructed in 3 parts. It begins with the centre triangle worked in garter stitch. Yarn overs are made at the beginning of each row to increase the triangle. Stitches are then easily picked up from the very visible yarn over loops along the edges, and the border is worked outwards from the centre triangle. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live stitches of the border as it is being worked.
