Place the shawl on a carpet, mattress (or blocking boards) - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins.
Fasten pins evenly upwards in the outermost sts on each side of shawl.
Pull the cast on edge slightly and fasten 1 pin in the middle of dec in every repetition so that the edge is shaped with small tips.
Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the shawl has been washed.
