I knitted this shawl with handspun yarn, but any commercially made lace weight yarn will do. Gauge is not really important for this project. I used 5 mm needles because I like an open and airy look, but you can use smaller needles without problem, you’ll just have to work more repeats to get the same size.
I did check the pattern for erratas, and found a couple, actually, but I corrected them and think evereything is fine now, but if you think you’ve found something wrong, please contact me so i can correct it. Thanks!
