3/19/2011 Due to the varying nature in the gauge of the lace pattern I am increasing the yarn requirement to 650 yards or 5 skeins. My sample took 4, but the general consensus from other knitters is it requires more yarn, so, to be safe, buy 5!
Need help with the increases in the “Top Border Strip” Section? http://o-wool.com/blog/?p=430 - I made a blog post to help clear up any confusion.
If your pattern is dated BEFORE 2/25/11, please see errata.

Size 7 (4.5 mm): 36” cir.

Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

This shawl is knit in two sections: the Top Border Strip is knit first and folded in half, then sts are picked up along the side and the Body is knit downwards from it.
