Setting the stage, kit
"Setting the stage" shawl!
It is a great name for this crescent shaped shawl as you are constantly increasing in rows of Stockinette stitches to then finally setting the stage to a spectacular, yet easily knitted lace border.
Blocked size: Span of 84” in the bottom lace section, 17” in height, including the 4” height lace portion.
The pattern is written and has a lace chart.

Darning needle or crochet hook for finishing
You may need a larger needles size, as I am a loose knitter. A gauge swatch will reassure you about the needle size needed for you.
