The Galax Shawl is wide and curved, and can be styled like a scarf. The sideways edging is worked modularly with increases and short-rows, creating the stitches for the future body section. This prevents picking up stitches later and makes for a smooth, lacy join between the two sections.
Finished Size 110" along outer edge, 70" along inner edge, and 11" wide.
