The Windflower shawl is worked from the top down, beginning with an extra-long, stretchy garter tab to alleviate issues with the dreaded crescent shawl hump. The body of the shawl is an easy-to-memorize lace pattern. The lace itself is only worked on the RS rows, but the WS rows do have purl-through-the-back-loop stitches to give greater definition to the lace pattern. The pattern includes instructions for three sizes (and it’s easy to customize this pattern to other yardages), as well as charts and line-by-line written instructions.
