This was a Mystery Knit-A-Long. Meta Mystery KAL is an Adventure in Shapes!

Meta was designed to be knit in sections (or kites) and then those kites are connected to create a uniquely shaped shawl that sits perfectly on the shoulders.
First 3 mainly garter stitch kites are knit, 1 of which has optional beads. Then kites 1 and 2 are connected by a rectangular panel that has a lace stripe. An edging is worked out from the side of Kite 1.  Then kites 2 and 3 are connected with another panel, and an edging is worked out on kite 3, and suddenly you have a shawl!
