"One day, I decided to knit a lacy triangular shawl, not the traditional way, but from the side, corner to corner, using a few basic elements from the Orenburg style of lace knitting. When I mentioned this idea to my friend and mentor Galina Khmeleva, I was surprised to learn that this style of knitting shawls has been used for a long time by pukhovnitsy (Orenburg lace shawl knitters).
"This type of shawl does not have an edging of decorative knitted scalloped teeth, a style that first appeared in the late 1940s. Before this, shawl edges were usually finished with fringe or scalloped by blocking, not knitting, or blocked evenly."
