Major errata:
In versions prior to v1.8, the curved bloom chart incorrectly reads on R35, 37, & 39. R35 & R39 should have no decreases on either edge of the panel, and R37 should have single decreases, not double (ie: ssk and k2tog, not sssk and k3tog). v1.8 has been corrected for this and the minor errata below.

These two shawls differ only in their degree of curve and blocking – their basic dimensions are the same. The grey version is the shallower shawl, and the teal version curves more. Both have the same lace bloom pattern and feature beads. The garter crescent is the same; just choose your shape and enjoy!

The garter crescent is written, and achieves its shaping using strategic increases - no short rows! A dropped YO ensures that the edge is elastic. Both version of the lace edging are charted only, and lightly beaded using a small crochet hook to slip the bead over an individual knit stitch.

One skein of fingering (approx 350m/370yd, 100g/4oz) and 255 beads are needed for this design.

Minor errata:
In v1.5, the kfb symbol was omitted from the chart; it is the “V” with a “2” inside it. v1.6 has been updated.
In v1.6, the two stitches on each outside edge of the Curved Bloom chart should be knit (and symmetrical on both sides, like the Shallow Bloom chart). v1.7 has been updated.
Major errata:
In versions prior to v1.8, the curved bloom chart incorrectly reads on R35, 37, & 39. R35 & R39 should have no decreases on either edge of the panel, and R37 should have single decreases, not double (ie: ssk and k2tog, not sssk and k3tog).
