This shawl is knit flat on the bias from one tip to the opposite edge. It begins with a few stitches and grows three stitches for every four rows. Colourful lines of garter ridges telescope toward a mosaic section, in which the garter lines rotate ninety degrees. The shawl ends with a colourful band of garter stitch rows in all the contrasting colours.
