This was knitted from the top down and increases made to create the long edge. This is a really ingenious pattern but it is a failry standard way of knitting a triangular shawl. It can be made larger by increasing the budding repeats to 19. This is the smaller version of the shawl as described in the published pattern. The only small difficulty are the nupps to create the lily of the valley pattern but once you get the hang of them it is a breeze. There are various YouTube videos describing how to do them which you can look up.
