Row 86: There should be k6 after BO 6.

Row 62: There should be p1, sl m after sl m, before repeat.

Row 56: there should be a “p1” between repeat to 3 sts before marker and k2

Row 51: it should be 11 sts before marker, and there should be skp before p3, k6, YO.

Row 41: The repeat between ** should be: YO, skp, p3,k7. Chart is correct.

Poison Ivy is a triangular shawl worked from top down. This is the first shawl that I designed using top down construction as I was curious how I like it compared to the bottom up construction.

Pattern includes charts and written directions, and stitch count totals for every row.
I also include picture tutorial of how to make the crochet bind-off and tips on how to make a larger or smaller shawl and calculate the yardage needed.
