Step 10. Unroll the two
3-yard holding cords. Mentally label them 1
The scallops were attached to holding cord
1. The second holding cord was added in step
next to the Square knots along the left
edge of the Shawl.
It should rest on
top of the working cords. Secure it so it
has tension. You can hold it if that's
easier for you.
Beginning at the upper left, attach all the cords
to the left of the center, with DHH (half
the total number available).
When you get to the point at the bottom of the V
design, make sure you divide up the cords evenly,
so both sides are balanced.
Position the right
half of holding
cord 2 against the right
edge of the Shawl. Attach the
remaining cords to it with DHH.
Step 11: You
have two options for finishing the lower edge of
the Vintage Shawl. One is a fringe, and the
other is a Scalloped edge, which matches the top.
step 10, attaching the working
cords to holding
After all the cords are attached, move to the
bottom point of the Shawl. Locate the 4 ends
of the holding
Use one from each side and tie 2 Overhand knots
with glue added between them. Repeat with
the other two holding cords.
Trim the cords so they follow the same slant as
the diagonal edges. Other fringe designs can
be used here if you have a favorite technique.
For a Scalloped
cord 1 into position, resting close to
of DHH along the edges.
Attach the first
cords with DHH, near the top left area of
Use cord 1
to tie 5 Vertical Larks Head knots onto cord 2,
(see step 1)
Fold the knots to form the scallop, and then
cords to holding cord 1 with DHH.
When you are done, the ends will be heading towards
the Square Knots.
Create the remaining scallops on the left side of
the Vintage Shawl, working with two cords at at a

Tie a tight Barrel knot in each cord. Apply
glue, then tighten it so it rests close to the bar
