Who Spiked the Shawl?
The shawl is a slightly asymmetrical triangle knit from one long edge to the opposite tip, with decreases along the left edge only. The spikes are created with short-rows (much as you would create the heel or toe of a sock) and enclosed by knitting the back of the first row of the spike together with the corresponding stitches in the last row of the spike. There is also short-row shaping in the main colour sections so that the spiked sections flare out slightly along the right edge of the work.
Pattern includes full written instructions, as well as charts of spike construction, a quick reference sheet with checklist to track your progress, and links to video tutorials for unusual techniques.
