The combination of the garter stitch and contrasts sections work up in such a way that the shawl is reversible and some people prefer the reverse side to the right side, I wonder which you'll prefer...
The shawl is named after Badbury Rings, an Iron Age hill fort in Dorset. The fort is surrounded by unevenly spaced concentric ditches, which inspired many hours of imaginative play during my childhood.
