Pat­tern Notes

The shawl is worked in the round from the cen­ter out, be­gin­ning with a Turk­ish cast-on worked onto 2 cir­cu­lar nee­dles.

The first stitch on each nee­dle is marked with a re­mov­able marker. Use the free end of 1 cir­cu­lar nee­dle to work across the stitches on that nee­dle. When you have enough stitches, you may work all of the stitches onto 1 nee­dle. Once all of the stitches are com­bined onto 1 nee­dle, you may con­tinue to use the re­mov­able mark­ers to sep­a­rate the 2 lace pat­terns, or you may re­move the mark­ers and place a ring marker be­fore each of the marked stitches.

When join­ing new yarn, join within a ca­ble sec­tion to make it eas­ier to weave in ends.
