It is me or does this shawl appear to be a little of "center" for a lack of a better word. I see within the directions that this is made with "unusual construction" I also went to the video that a link was provided for. Just asking before I get started. I am always wanting something new and unusual. This may be one of those patterns.

I love the oven weave of this checkerboard lace shawl. The color is not half bad either. I can see me wearing this thru the spring right up through summer if the conditions are right. Thanks for the directions on how to modify this to suit the wearers individual taste.
