Millrace shawl

The Millrace Shawl is a long, shallow crescent that begins and ends with just 4 stitches. It uses the same undulating lace border as the Millrace scarf, but has a deeper, longer body that is worked in garter stitch.

The shawl is knit from point to point, the border worked at the same time as the garter body. A twisted rib provides a visual transition between the two parts, and serves as a reminder for increasing and decreasing.
