The finished sample features 8 drop stitch sections and ends with 4 garter ridges. The pattern is written to features 7 drop stitch sections and end with 8 garter ridges. If you are interested in using all 400 yards of a skein of Northbound Knitting Fingering Singles, add 18 stitches to the section 1 cast on (this will require more yardage for Color A).

Would you like to end with a drop stitch section instead of the garter stitch section? Add two more stitches to the cast on for section 1 (this will require more yardage for Color A).

Shawl could also be knit with larger yarn and larger needles, though shawl measurements and total yardage would change from the sample size mentioned above.
