Demalangeni is a triangular, crescent shaped shawl. It is worked from the bottom edge up. The lace border is worked along the full width of the shawl, and then short rows are used to fill in the body with a simple textured stitch that resembles mock cables.
10 sts/14 rows = 2 inches in charted border pattern. Gauge is not essential for this project.
