Since I began knitting shawls I have always dreamed of a green shawl with a branched middle that ends in a full border of lace.
And here it is!

This shawl is enjoyably simple and require a minimum attention. The lace central panel is easy to remember, and by the time you reach the border you will know it by heart!
