Tip:

Even without a border it lays pretty flat.
Increase and decrease on the same row, so the stitch count is the same on every row.
This stitch needs to be blocked to show off the lace.

I think this would make a beautiful wrap or it would add a bit of lace on the bottom edge of a spring sweater.
