Allegretto shawl pattern

This is a knitting pattern for a light and cheerful lace shawl with plenty of air and texture: long zigzag rows blending into a narrow trellis lace edging all around.
It is a relatively quick and easy lace knitting project, since the shawl is worked in one piece without any grafting, picking up stitches or difficult techniques.

The shawl requires one 100 g skein of lace weight yarn - approximately 800 m or 850 yds. Naturally, it can be worked in lighter and heavier yarn weights as well.

The pattern is available on Ravelry.

Some help with lace cast-on and bind-off methods can be found in this post.
