On the written instructions for Chart 1, there is an erroneous “K2” after the first “sm” (slip marker) on Rows 4, 20, 36, 52, and 68.

The charts are correct as written.

This shawl is the final design in a series of three created to showcase the beauty and depth of the Meru (51% Wild Tussah Silk / 49% Merino Wool) Septra Series of lace weight yarns from Curious Creek Fibers (curiouscreek.com). All of Curious Creek yarns garner their inspiration and names from reserve and game parks all over the continent of Africa. In honor of this tradition, this shawl was named Rafiki (Swahili for “Friend”).
