My newest shawl has a border inspired by a construction technique I found in Wrapped in Lace by Margaret Stove. In her Rosebud and Filmy Fern shawls, she starts from the bottom of the shawl and creates points using short rows before continuing the body of the shawl.
I had to swatch a bit of her pattern to understand how it was constructed.
I’m pleased with the results. It’s such a fun technique and not really that difficult once you get the hang of it, though it is rather nerve wracking turning a laceweight yarn project back and forth for the short rows. Someday I will have to learn to knit backwards.
