PAT­TERN NOTES

When count­ing stitches it is best to count loops on the hook be­fore work­ing the re­turn pass. Stan­dard Re­turn Pass is work loops off hook (see Spe­cial Stitches) and is used ev­ery row un­less other­wise stated. First stitch on hook counts as first Tunisian knit stitch in stitch counts, but is not re­ferred to in the in­struc­tions. The last stitch of ev­ery row should be worked as a Tunisian knit stitch, in­sert­ing the hook un­der 2 outer strands of yarn to back of work, and then pulling up the final loop (see il­lus­tra­tion). Shawl is worked in one piece from tip to tip. Tunisian Lace Di­a­mond Pat­tern is worked along right side of shawl, while a cres­cent Tunisian sim­ple stitch sec­tion shaped with in­creases and de­creases is worked at the left side of shawl. A stitch marker sep­a­rates the di­a­mond lace bor­der from the cres­cent in­crease sec­tion and is moved up with each row. Once pat­tern is es­tab­lished, marker may be re­moved if de­sired. Bands of 2 Tunisian knit stitches with yarn- over spa­ces be­side them sep­a­rate de­sign el­e­ments through­out this pat­tern. Tunisian knit stitches are al­ways worked into those of the row be­low and the yarn- over spa­ces be­side align atop each other. At the 4- stitch right- cross ca­ble, the Tunisian knit stitch bands cross. Wet block­ing is es­sen­tial to the final ap­pear­ance of this piece both for gauge and to open the lace.

SPE­CIAL STITCHES

Work loops off hook (work lps off hook): Yo, pull through 1 lp on hook (see A of il­lus­tra­tion), [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook (see B of il­lus­tra­tion)] across un­til 1 lp rem on hook. Last lp on hook counts as first st of next row. Tunisian Sim­ple Stitch ( TSS): In­sert hook un­der front strand of next ver­ti­cal bar from right to left (see il­lus­tra­tion), yo, pull lp through.

TKS next 2 stitches to­gether ( TKS2­tog): In­sert hook into next 2 sts at once as if to TKS, YO, pull up lp through both sts. TSS next 3 stitches to­gether ( TSS3­tog): In­sert hook un­der next 3 ver­ti­cal bars at once as if to TSS, YO, pull up lp through both bars. Back bar in­crease (BBinc): TSS in back ver­ti­cal bar of st, TSS again in front ver­ti­cal bar of same st (as in stan­dard TSS), 1 st in­creased. Triple In­crease ( TRPinc): TSS in back ver­ti­cal bar of stitch, in­sert hook un­der back bump of hor­i­zon­tal bar above same stitch, yo, pull up lp, TSS again in front ver­ti­cal bar of same stitch (as in stan­dard TSS), 2 sts in­creased. 4- st Right Cross Ca­ble (4RC): For­ward pass: Us­ing helper hook, TKS in next TKS in next 2 sts, hold sts to back of work, sk next st (see note be­low), us­ing main Tunisian hook, TKS in next TKS in next 2 sts, slide sts on helper hook to end of hook, and off onto Tunisian hook in front of 2 sts just made, 4 sts crossed.
