This shawl is shaped like the Taurus  symbol--a head and two horns. The head is worked first, from the center out, and then stitches are picked up and worked down for each horn.  The left horn represents stability, a  common Taurean characteristic, and the right horn the new growth of April and May.

Both written out and charted instructions are provided.
