Setting the stage 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.
