Ballerina is an asymmetric, crescent shape shawl worked from the top edge down to the rib edging, with increases at both ends. The shawl is designed in one size, but it’s very easy to achieve different sizes by adding a multiple of 3 sts to Section 1 and/or changing the number of short row sets worked in Section 3.
