Cobweb Lace Christening Shawl

I have been asked to knit this shawl. The kit arrived, there is no chart and the language in the pattern is different. Oh well a learning curve.

You start with the border and have to knit 96 points. Ok so the first thing is to chart this border, which was not too hard. Now to knit. As is normal with me I had to go down 2 needle sizes so I am using a 3.25 needle. The border is only 14 stitches at the point so I am finding it easier to use DPN's to knit with as you are constantly turning your work.
