I had one concern about construction. Namely that the picked up edge would be unslightly on the reverse side, despite my attempts to minimise this by careful placement of the increases. I needn't have worried. After blocking the edge forms an attractive ridge. The shawl is basically reversible in that it looks good on both sides. This works well for me as I have trouble remembering to sort my hair out in the morning, let alone arrange my accessories 'just so'.
And I was tempted to call the pattern Wimbledon after our second attempt at a shoot got rained off....but it all worked out well in the end.
