Pat­tern Notes

For chained edge, be­gin each row with yarn in front, slip first stitch as if to purl, take yarn to back be­tween first and 2nd stitches of row and work across to the last stitch; knit last stitch through back loop. As this shawl is re­versible, mark the first row as the right side for ease in re­mem­ber­ing the side on which you are work­ing. Mark­ers are placed so they are at the cen­ter of each di­a­mond or di­a­mondto-be. Keep them in this po­si­tion, in­clud­ing be­tween the dou­ble yarn overs when ap­pli­ca­ble.
