As with many traditional paisley shawls, Evelyn Clark has taken a simple square panel, worked from the center out, and surrounded it with an elaborate border that is finished with a picot edging. To make the paisley motifs line up when the shawl is folded in a triangle, Evelyn has reversed the orientation of the motifs on half of the shawl. A garter-stitch base provides a lot of give so the shawl can be blocked to a range of sizes, depending on how open and lacey you’d like it.
