Make the most of your hand dyed yarn with this wide, shallow shawl. Worked from the edge up, the shawl is completely shaped using short rows, allowing you to add more rows easily for a deeper shawl.
The edging of the shawl is worked at the start from end to end. One side of the edging has a column of yarnovers and the other side is a more open lace edge.
The pattern initially detailed picking up the body from the straight yarnover section however the photo has shown it picked up from the other side.
I would suggest deciding if you want a smoother edge as shown in the photos (pick up from the outer, sawtooth edge of the lace) or if you want a more standard lace edge pick up along the straight yarn over edge as detailed in the pattern.
These details will be added to the pattern.
