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.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

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