That's a beautiful shawl! Nice execution of the stitch. Did you start at the neckline or at the point?

I started at the neckline.  Many, many years ago I made a couple of these shawls and I started at the point, which I liked better.  I had forgotten how to start at the point so I made it from the neckline from a pattern I found on the web.  I have since found the pattern that starts at the point.  I think it is from Drops and you can find it on CPC.   I used Lion Pound of Love for this shawl.  I also had made one for my daughter a few years ago using a thinner mohair-like yarn that came out very nice.  I had figured out a way that I didn't have to double up on the knot at the end of the row by using a long DC stitch instead which brought me up to the position to start the next row, and it ends up looking just like a knot stitch.

Thank you ladies.  Once you learn how to do the knot stitch, it really easy to make this shawl.
