The shawl features traditional Shetland lace patterns combined in a clean, simple way with a garter stitch centre. The edging is worked first as a long strip and stitches are picked up from the centre. A looped yarn over selvedge makes this is a simple process. The centre is shaped with decreases until only a few stitches are left, these are grafted together for a neat finish.
