Worthy of Note
The Palms stole is worked over two halves from the center to the bind off edge. Stitches for the second half are picked up in the foundation row and worked in the opposite direction. A three stitch edging is worked on all rows. The edge is bound off using a smaller crochet hook, and incorporates small chain loops for a decorative look.
