“Love suffers long and is kind; …” 1 Corinthians 13:4
The original shawl is done with 5-st Star motif for the short row “body”, but it proved to be quite a challenge and it doesn’t fully “open up” (stretch) after blocking which might be a point of frustration for some, so, with all that said, you don’t have to do the 5st-Star body. You can just knit short rows in stockinette or garter stitch, whichever you like better, not change the needle size if you do that.
