The upper portion of this shawl is worked in a modular fashion. Mitered squares and triangles are knit and attached to one another as you go, forming a triangle.
Stitches are picked up off the 2 short sides of the mitered section and the lower portion of the shawl is knit.
Finally, the lace edging is worked sideways, and stitches from the shawl body are bound off as you go.
