shawl shaping v. 1 (copy)

This is one of the shapes I typically use for shawls. Basically, you have four sections, each divided by a single stitch. Simply increase one st every right side row in the first and last sections, while increasing the middle sections every other right side row. This gives a shawl that has a curved shoulders while providing a straight back giving a gentle crescent shape.
