Pat­tern Notes

This shawl is asym­met­ri­cal, and is worked back and forth in rows from side to side. The pat­tern be­gins at the nar­row end and in­creases 1 stitch per right-side row to the widest end.

A cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of stitches.

Col­ors are changed at be­gin­ning of wrong-side rows.

Work all wrong-side rows for shawl as fol­lows un­less in­structed oth­er­wise: P1 (hold­ing both yarns to­gether if there are 2 yarns at end of row), then work across row us­ing des­ig­nated color (if work­ing stripes) as fol­lows: p2­tog, purl to last 2 sts, pfb, p1.

Work KT, kfb, at be­gin­ning of all right­side rows un­less in­structed oth­er­wise.

When work­ing Lace Pat­tern, main­tain es­tab­lished pat­tern. Knit new stitches that are added in front of marker on right-side rows, then con­tinue with es­tab­lished Lace Pat­tern. You may not be able to work a com­plete last re­peat of the pat­tern at the end of right-side rows.

Un­less oth­er­wise spec­i­fied, slip mark­ers as you get to them.
