This shawl is worked in a modular fashion. The Left and Right Wings are top-down triangles. One side of each wing is joined together using a three needle bind off. The other side of each wing is bound off, forming the top straight edge of the shawl. Finally, stitches are picked up along the top edge of each wing and the CC Border is worked as a knit-on edging.
After Row 36 of the Triangle Lace pattern, there will be multiple pattern repeats in the same row. Try placing markers between pattern repeats to help keep track. The red outlines on the chart or asterisks in the written instructions indicate beginning and end of pattern repeats.
Stitch patterns are both written and charted.
