This shawl is an ode to cold, calm, and white snowy days that winter gracefully give us sometimes. The shawl starts at the centre edge and is worked as a half-pi shaped shawl. Its double yarn over stitch pattern progress throughout the body of the shawl getting more scattered as you progress. The stripy lace border is then worked in German Short Rows. Short rows are really simple to work and they are almost invisible on stocking stitch. This way the border almost blends in the shawl body.

Oh man, I love to block my knits. Maybe even a little too much.
Frogging can definitively be the best thing ever. And that’s what happened here. I found the perfect sweet proportions in my opinion for this lace border.
… And it’s not the end of the world. It may be painful or frustrating, but sometimes frogging is the best thing which can happen to your current WIP. As it is for me now.
