NOTES

Work each mo­tif to the end of Round 10 be­fore work­ing Round 11 to join Mo­tifs in a 3x5 rec­tan­gle. A bor­der is worked around the Mo­tif sec­tion. Block the Mo­tif sec­tion be­fore adding the striped tail por­tion of the shawl. No fur­ther block­ing is nec­es­sary. When chang­ing colour in the striped sec­tion of the shawl, change colour in the last yrh of the pre­vi­ous st.
