This shawl is a variation based on the popular Color Craving design from the Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL 2013. Two sections use yarn over shaping to give the illusion of short rows. A diamond shape is formed while being attached to the matching striped shapes. Afterward, more stripes and yarn over shaping create a large border around the entire perimeter.
A picot bind off finishes the unique elongated shape.
