Notions: 1 stitch marker, tapestry needle
Notes: The lace border is worked first, stitches are then picked up and the shawl is worked upwards with shaping created by decreasing 4 sts every RS row. You may find it easier to work the border on short straight needles. Place a stitch marker at regular intervals, e.g. every 50 sts, when picking up stitches from the border to help you keep track of the count.
