At the end of 6th row do not turn piece but rotate 90 degrees clockwise, pick up 3 sts along the edge (i.e. 1 st in every ridge (1 ridge = 2 rows in garter st)), rotate piece again, 90 degrees clockwise and pick up 3 sts along cast on edge (i.e. 1 st in every st) = 9 sts on needle. Insert a marker in the 5th st (mid st - marks mid back of shawl). Then K every row while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS as follows: Make 1 YO inside 3 sts in garter st in each side and make a YO on each side of st with marker. Bind off when piece measures 60 cm / 23½'', measured in the middle of shawl.

Work back and forth according to A.1, AT THE SAME TIME work the edge tog with the shawl – start at the top of shawl and work the edge along the right diagonal side down to the tip. Work the edge on to the shawl as follows – on every row from WS: Pick up the outermost st in front loop from shawl with right needle, work first st from left needle (A.1), pass the new st over, work the rest of row. When lace edge has been worked entirely down to tip of shawl (approx. 19 repetitions of A.1), work in garter st over all sts while AT THE SAME TIME binding off 3 sts at beg of every row from WS, continue in garter st until all sts have been bound off.
