This shawl is crocheted entirely in slip stitches. The pattern is based on a wonderful feature of crochet: With each stitch, you are free to take your stitches in a new direction. Out of this feature I developed a technique of crocheting with long rows, resembling Peano curves. For those who are not mathematicians: A Peano curve fills an area by twisting and turning fractally. The result for crochet is a shawl with few but very long rows. The lace border enhances the lightness of the shawl.
The pattern includes written instructions and photo tutorials for the stitches, for decreases and for my technique of working in long rows. The stitches used are regular slip stitch (slst), inverse slip stitch (islst), front loop only slip stitch (F), and inverse back loop only slip stitch (iB).
