Photos of finished cotton summer shawl with fancy edging.
The body of the shawl is double crochet with some v stitch rows for increase purposes. It seems to go on forever.

I have never done a border like this, it attaches sideways as you go.

 The pattern is Crescent Lace Shawl by Tian Connaughton in the summer 2015 Love of Crochet. I mostly behaved myself and followed directions. The hook recommended was 3.5mm and I used 3.75mm. I did not do as many rows as specified because it was big enough. I used a mystery cotton on a cone (thrift store find). The only information is a small tag on the inside saying 3000yds  2 ply. It is very fine and slubbed.
