The shawl features eyelets and center decreasing to form the triangle. The beautiful peaked lace border is worked last from the bottom edge. The soft color changing eliminates the need for manual striping. This is a good project for learning mitered decreasing and eyelet decoration, and it looks fabulous, too. (Crystal Palace Yarns)
