This shawl is knit sideways from one end to the other. The lace edging is knit at the same time as the garter stitch main section. The shawl is made up of three sections: an increase, a straight, and a decrease section.
The size of the shawl, yarn amount, and yarn weight are very flexible. If you want to make sure you have enough yarn or are using a different weight yarn, all you need to do is weigh it. 30% will go towards the increase section, 40% to the straight section, and 30% to the decrease section.
