Pattern update: crochet bind-off is correct now. Thank you so much Virpi
Pattern contains charts and some written instructions.

Useful notes: November 2013
Some knitters said that charts have errors or mistakes. As long as I know charts are ok. The decreases do not follow the usual way of decrease lines. The idea is that they will pop instead creating a line.

No written description for the charts.
Suggested gauge and yarn amount is for a DK yarn.

Finished size after blocking: 45 cm. (17 in) in the central or middle point x 150 cm. (59 in) inside the wingspan

If you use fingering weight yarn, your shawl will be a little smaller

Construction notes:
The shawl is knitted in one piece using circular knitting needles (back and forward) and in 2 (two) steps, without breaking the yarn:
Step 1: bottom-up - triangular base shaped with short rows.
Step 2: top-down lace edge by picking up stitches

Note: As English is not my first language, if you see any mistake or something that is not clear, please let me know.
Enjoy your knitting!
