There are 3 different sections to this shawl. Chart A, Chart B (broken down into several smaller charts as the rows get longer), and Chart C. Chart A is the “ribs” of the shawl. This is a 21-stitch section that runs the depth of the shawl and breaks up the main body section. Chart B is the main body of the shawl. This is where the majority of the shaping decreases take place. There are multiple charts that comprise the B section since the rows are increasing and evolving as you go. Chart C is the border which is knit on at the end.
