PAT­TERN NOTES

Weave in ends as work pro­gresses. Shawl is made as a sim­ple rec­tan­gu­lar block of dou­ble Solomon’s knots and Filet lace. Main­tain even ten­sion over the Solomon’s knots so they align with the Filet lace bound­aries. The edg­ing tech­nique has fre­quent changes in di­rec­tion and uses a num­ber of stitch pat­terns. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of row counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less other­wise stated. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of edg­ing rows counts as first dou­ble cro­chet and chain-1. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less other­wise stated.
