*****This is a pattern on how to knit a shawl and not an actual shawl.*****
Bordertown is an elegant shawl that features combination of simple lace and cables. The picot edge adds visual interest. The shawl is knitted sideways. One side of the picot/cable border and the top edge are knitted simultaneously with the body of the shawl. The other half of the border is knitted along the bind off edge at the same time as bind off is done. Bordertown is light and airy shawl for you to enjoy. The shawl looks lovely in both solid and variegated yarns.
The instructions are both written and charted.
Finished size: After blocking, the sample shawl measures 168 cm (66 inches) long along the top edge and 82 cm (32 inches) deep.
Gauge The gauge in lace pattern after blocking measures 12 sts x 18 rows in 10 cm x 10 cm. The gauge is not critical in knitting this shawl. Adjust your needle size to suit your yarn and achieve the size and the look of the shawl of your choice.
