Pat­tern Notes

The shawl is com­prised of a se­ries of in­creas­ingly smaller wedges, each of which is shaped us­ing short rows.

Do not wrap a stitch be­fore turn­ing at the end of a short row. The point where the work is turned will form a gap that is re­ferred to in the fol­low­ing wrong­side row; if you have dif­fi­culty spot­ting the gap, you can place a stitch marker in the work when you turn to help make gap more ev­i­dent.

Do not cut yarn when chang­ing colors; carry the un­used color along the edge of the work.

Where in­struc­tions are given for more than 1 wedge, the first num­ber refers to the first wedge, with re­main­ing wedges in paren­the­ses. When only 1 num­ber is given, it ap­plies to all wedges in the sec­tion.
