Construction & Schematic


This shawl is cast on (1) with an icord cast on and is then worked top-down (2) with 4 increases alongside the stitch patterns every other row to fill out the body.

An icord cast on (3) is used to continue the icord and create stitches for the border, which is worked as an applied edging (4), binding off 1 stitch every 2 rows. A short row corner is worked at the bottom center point of the shawl (5) before continuing with the applied border.

The shawl is finished with an icord bind off. The last 3 body stitches are grafted together with 3 stitches from the icord bind off for a continuous icord edge (6).
