The errata notes are only for the LYS day download!

Errata note: The number of stitches to pick up on the CO & PU Row (page 9) should be 186 (with the CO2 at the beginning and end) for a total of 190 sts.

Suggestions are made for making this piece larger; the pattern is for one size.

A lovely way to explore the beauty of knit and purl combinations while making yourself an easy-to-wear shawl perfect for Spring and Summer.

Work the drape in seeded chevron; the movement of the stitches adds intrigue and allows the hand painted yarn to work to its best effect. Move on to 2x2 rib along one of the long edges of the drape to get a perfect “collar” which can be left flat or rolled into an easygoing rolled neckline and front. The front bands puts the perfect polish on this piece. Use the video link to learn backwards knitting to make that last detail take less effort.

Made from one skein of Anzula Luxury Fibers Squishy, you will love wearing this. Lightweight and just open enough to wear wherever you are going.
