The shawl is worked side-to-side, or rather wriggle to wriggle, and works up quite quickly in mostly garter stitch. The waviness is worked right in, and so are the little 'eyes' and 'fangs' that will make any lover of fantastic beasts smile.
The color possibilities for this piece are endless - either the wedges or the wriggles could be solid or a gradient set of shades, it can be worked with just two contrasting colors or as many as 17 if you wanted to get eclectic or do some serious sock yarn stash busting.
