Rep the last 2 rows 7 more times, ending after Row 18 of Border Lace pat—311 sts.

DESIGNER NOTE:  in the original pattern and in the sample I bound off at this point but if I had it to do over again, like you are doing right now, I would work 3-5 rows of garter stitch after the border lace pat and before binding off. Otherwise the shawl tends to curl at the bottom. My plan is to go back and redo my bind off on the sample at some point because I hate how it rolls.

Bind off loosely. 

 

Finishing

Weave in loose ends.

Wash and Block piece to measurements. I think that washing the finished shawl is a must as it cleans the yarn, allows it to relax and bloom. I like to use Allure Fine Fiber and Fabric Wash for washing my finished pieces as it smells lovely and designed by my friend, Eileen Koop. Eileen is the owner of Bijou Basin Ranch and is also a chemist!
