I designed this for a very dear friend. The diamonds at the top are because her friendship is more valuable to me than gemstones, the hearts are for love, and the semi-circles in the border are the hugs that I give her long distance because she lives more than 1,000 miles away.

Shawl starts at the center top with a tab cast on, and grows out and down from there.
