I love creating pieces with unexpected texture combinations. The feminine, lacy lattice stitch used for the body of this shawl is offset by the more structured corrugated (or pleated) border. Contrasting color choices enhance the play in textures.
The border of the shawl is worked first, and then stitches are picked up along one edge and worked from the center out with increasing every row.
