This right-angle shawl starts by working the first Twisted Block, then adds the second Block by casting on and working another pattern repeat of 9 stitches, then continues that process by adding a third Block. These three Blocks continue up the left side of the shawl.

Single Twisted Blocks are then added at repeat intervals along the right edge of the shawl, while the Slipped Basket Field is introduced to fill the center of the shawl.

The shawl ends with the left side Blocks bound off, first one then the second. The final segment is worked in Twisted Blocks all the way across to finish the shawl.
