Simurgh is just the beginning
I discovered with the Beefields shawl that the stole makes a nice warm-up for the triangle shawl. In that case I started with the triangle and then picked up the stole midway through. I liked getting comfortable with the motifs without having to worry about the shifts on either side for the triangle increase. With the raven shawls, I decided to start with the stole (Simurgh) and then move to the shawl, which Anne is calling Irtfa'a. I ordered the yarn for both at the same time, and both patterns were out by the time I got the yarn.
