The motif used for this shawl comes from the book: Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs, by Edie Eckman.  It is Motif # 118.  This is one of my favorite motifs, and the one I have on my blog´s header.  [Note: I am currently making random motifs from that book, and you can follow my progress in my gallery: Motif Challenge 2012.]
