On episode 708, Laura and Barry showed a rainbow ruffled shawl whereby they stitched a while, then increased dramatically and knit the ruffle. They bound off the bottom of the ruffle, then went back to right before they increased for the ruffle, picked up the stitches, and knitted some more before the next ruffle.  Where do I find this pattern? (This is not the "scarf" that is narrow with the long edges ruffled.)
