With basil leaves running along the edge, Pesto is a garter stitch shawl knit sideways from end to end. The lace border is knit at the same time as the body and the shaping is achieved by working increases or decreases prior to the edging. The size of the shawl can be customized depending on the amount of yarn you have so it is the perfect pattern for making the most of a special skein of yarn. Instructions on how to do this are included. The pattern contains both written and charted instructions.
