Finishing
Weave in ends, but do not trim.
Soak shawl in tepid water for 20 minutes. Squeeze gently and place between towels. Press to remove excess water. Lay a large towel on a flat surface, into which you can pin (carpet or foam tiles work well). Spread out the shawl to measurements and pin out to dry. When completely dry, unpin and trim ends.
