Inspired by the leaves of the Oroya Peruviana cactus, this airy lace shawl will keep your shoulders warm on cool summer nights. Add some fine seed beads (the sample uses #10 seed beads) along the edge to catch the sunlight and add a little bling.

Errata (Printed Version)
This errata applies only to the printed version (glossy cardstock) that Yarn Crush subscribers received in their boxes, and that TTC Knitalong 2015 participants received in their swag bags. These errors have been corrected in the digital version.

  • Right edging chart: should have been flipped. If you work this chart from left to right instead of the usual right to left direction, you’ll be fine.
  • Chart A: Rows were mis-numbered. Row 7 was missing, and so the instructions incorrectly stated to work up to row 15 before switching to Transition Chart. The dotted line in the chart is in the correct position, only the numbering was incorrect (it should be numbered as row 13)
  • Chart A: Row 23, missing a k2tog between 2 yarnovers near the end of the row.
