    CONSTRUCTION

    • The shawl is worked circularly from a Provisional Cast On to one point, with a steek. The steek is then secured and cut open. Stitches are picked up along the straight edge of the triangle, and the stitches of the provisional cast on are released. The edging for these two sides is worked in one piece in garter stitch. The edging for the third side is picked up along the decreased edge of the triangle and along the side edges of the previous edging piece, and also worked in garter stitch.
