Bind off loosely using 2 stitch I-cord as follows:

k2 sts, slip the 2 sts purlwise back to left needle.

(k1, K next 2 sts together, slip 2 sts back to left needle), end k2 together.

 

Finishing: Weave in all ends and lightly steam the edges. Do not block: The natural pucker of the lace pattern adds texture and character to the shawl.

Designer Sue Mixer lives on a cliff over looking a small lake three miles from Lake Michigan. She takes much of her inspiration from this wondrous view of Mother Nature, as she transforms the yarn into beautiful sunsets, rainbows, butterflies flitting about or the falling leaves of autumn.
