What are you most proud of? This shawl is easy enough for a first lace project while still being interesting enough for a more advanced knitter.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Atoll Shawl is a half-hex shaped shawl. Using a larger needle size for the border causes the edges to spread out & curve upwards. The shape also allows the shawl to stay nicely on your shoulders without a lot of fussing.
