From pattern description:

“Lace shawl with contrasting colour pointed borders.”

From Vogue Knitting, Fall 2005:

“This airy shawl juxtaposes tone and technique. The body, knit in a simple lace pattern, is started with a provisional cast-on that allows the pointed border to be knitted on and worked horizontally. ‘Icelandic Laceweight Wool’ from Schoolhouse Press is used throughout.”
