Princess Ruffles Shawl is knit with fingering 4 ply yarn, 900 yds, on a US 6 (4.25 mm). The cast on is done at the neck and the body of the shawl is done in stockinette stitch.
Vera explains that 1/2 the yarn yardage is used in the stockinette and 1/2 in the lace ruffle, so if you are running short on yarn, Vera suggests, "Should you run short of yarn, eliminate Row 25 & 26 at the bottom of the lace pattern and work 2 less garter stitch rows at the bottom of the shawl." The written pattern is available in German and English.
