The lace Medallion shawl has an edging inspired by an antique Italian knitted lace design worked on a stockinette-stitch base. This makes an interesting surface contrast with the garter-stitch texture of the short-rowed sections. Be careful to read the chart correctly to make sure that the “chains” formed by the decreases are in line.
