Cheshire Noir is worked sideways. It is something between a shawl and a scarf. The wingspan is quite generous (especially if you continue working in the pattern until running out of a 100 gram skein), but the depth is rather shallow.
The pattern repeat is simple to let the color of the yarn shine. Once you get into the rhythm of this design you will see how it can easily be extended if desired, or shortened if necessary.
