Notes: 

For this version of the Budget Bamboo Shawl, I decided I wanted a more modern look.  I alternated 9 repeats of Block A lace with 5 repeats of Block B.  I made it longer so it can be draped around the body and attached with a shawl pin.  I also made the fringe 8 inches long for a more elegant look.  It was hard to photograph this shawl since it is black, it looks much better "in person".

Beautiful!

I have made two of these shawls-they drape so nicely!  Very pretty in black!
