Laura Aylor's Miss Potter shawl combines
simple stockinette with a touch of texture and a deep garter ruffle. It is knit
from the top down and can be knit with a straight top edge or with curving ends.
The size of the shawl will depend on the amount of yarn you have as you knit to
a certain point with half of your yarn. The measurements given are for 4 balls
(764 yards) of Felted Tweed at the specified gauge. Choosing not to knit the
curved ends will give you a slightly deeper shawl with the same yardage. Yarn
with some alpaca is recommended for drape. The textured band will show up better
in a lighter color.
