Beginning with a frilled cast-on that creates a picot edge, the Ribbon Tool Shawl is nearly identical on both sides. It is worked top-down in garter stitch and short-rows, then a perpendicular edging is worked along the bottom, with stitches between body and edging joined with decreases.

For help with the shawl edging see my tutorial here.
