Row 11 increases 10 sts, not 4 sts as the pattern states.

With knitting needles and lace techniques, we carve out little cameos in our own knitting way. With yarn as precious as gemstones and a crafter’s agile hands, the embossed little flowers will soon appear.

Note: The chart is on a separate page, but linked in the pattern page.

Cameo Flower is a large crescent shaped shawl, it has a stockinette start with a triple-spine and extra increases at the edges, giving it its shape. This is followed by a lace pattern that flows over the entire shawl – no need to keep track of spines anymore!
