Art Deco is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the top-down. The flowers in the border are inspired by the stylized flowers as commonly used in France, in the early days of Art Deco.
The shawl is started with a garter stitch tab. The body contains special shaping, which helps to avoid the “bump” in the upper edge of the shawl, so often present in crescent shawl designs. The lace in the border is knit on both right side and wrong side rows. The instructions for the border of the shawl are provided both fully charted and written out.
