Gauge: 11 sts x 22 rows in garter st = 10 x 10 cm.

Lace edge: See chart. The pattern is seen from the right side.

Shawl: Knit the square first in garter st, then knit the lace edge. Cast on 59 sts around 2 needles with Vivaldi (this is to make sure the cast-on edge is elastic). Pull out one needle and knit garter st.
When the piece measures 54 cm (lay piece flat to measure and be sure that the piece measures the same in height as in width). Bind off all sts.

Lace edge: Cast on 36 sts around 2 needles. Pull out one needle and knit Pattern 1. Note that the blank squares in the chart are garter st, not stockinette st.
When Lace edge measures approx. 3.5 meters – adjust to end after a whole repeat – bind off all sts loosely.

Assembly: Fold lace edge in half and put a marker in the fold, fold edge in half again and put markers in the 2 new folds – fold out entire length again.
Pin one end of lace edge to the center of one side of the square, then pin rest of lace edge so that each marker is in the center of one side of the square and the other end meets up with the first end. Pin the lace edge around square but leave approx. 10 cm before and after each corner unpinned. Put a crease in the lace edge at each corner and ease in the excess fabric.
Sew the lace edge to square edge (edge to edge, no seam allowance) and sew the two ends of the lace edge together in the same way.
