I love the look of this shawl and I would really like to make it, but I was just wondering which part I should start with. The band or the eyelet pattern?

What a pretty shawl! I like the option of having ties or not having ties. I don't enjoy having to pick up stitches, but I think I could accomplish the same thing by just casting off stitches on each end to reduce the number of stitches rather than casting off and then picking up stitches. Any thoughts on whether that would work as well?
