As the title says, this shawl is made one stepped section at a time. The foundation chain is at the bottom of the shawl and two pattern blocks wide – adding chains at the beginning and the end of the row once per repeat adds both width and height. The stair step edges are an unusual variation on a traditional triangular shawl shape.
