Lealett is a bottom-up triangular shawl.
The shawl has a garter stitch edging, 7 stitches wide, outside the increase stitches to prevent it from curling. Every first and last stitch is a knit stitch, which creates little bumps and makes the edge look nicer.
It has a garter stitch border across the top of the shawl, thus all three sides of the shawl look the same.

Size is adjustable by working more or fewer repeats, but please note, that changes will affect the finished size and required yardage.

The pattern contains schematics, charts and written instructions, photo tutorials. It has been professionally tech edited and test knitted.
