The shawl is worked from the neck down with a
common increasing technique that creates a triangular
shape. A simple slip-stitch pattern is used for the main
portion of the shawl, and, at a certain point, stripes in a
contrasting color are added. A traditional
and easy Orenburg shawl border is added t to finish this striking shawl.
