The curved shape of this shawl is the perfect compliment to the Showy Garter Stitch. The Showy Decrease (a simple modification to a k2tog) adds raised lines that run perpendicular to the garter ridges for a dramatic look. You can see the vertical implementation of this idea in the Granite Lake Shawl. The bias shaping in the Cassini Shawl curves the continuous lines adding texture and interest to the garter stitch.
