Block the shawl, pinning each picot to a point to get the most out of the mountainous appearance.
For extra pizzazz when styling, add a tassel to the end of Row 158.
Follow the washing instructions on the yarn you purchased. You may need to block the shawl again after each wash to maintain the peaks of the mountain edging.
