Shawl Debate Update

KnotAnotherHat posted this:

Is there any way to adapt the edge of the snowdrop and utilize the type of finished edge that the PNW uses?

I think it is a really good idea. I had a similar idea, so I'm going to look at the pattern and see if it is just a matter of casting on more sts or something simple. It would be really awesome if that was the big difference.

Update: Won't work. The PNW shawl goes from the top out (middle-out?) and the snowdrop goes from the bottom up. I am leaning more toward the snowdrop now b/c it would be different than Blair's.

What you could do is "pick up" the border stitches while you knit the shawl itself - by putting a YO on waste yarn before every row - it's what I'm considering meself. I need to figure out the math, to see if it's possible. Or, for variety, you could choose an entirely different shawl ;) (which'd be coolies)
