Full details on the completing of the shawl, here:

There’s exactly a year to go until I marry Mr Awesome, so I thought I’d cast myself on a little wedding shawl.


(Stockinette section) On WS rows instead of stacking further YOs, I worked the WS increases as follows:

K3 (edge sts), k1, bring yarn to front and then p1 into the same stitch, p to marker, sm, p until last four stitches, p1, take yarn to back and then k1 into the same stitch, k3.

This matches the central increases better and I think it looks far neater/more attractive.

23rd July: unravelled whole of Chart 3 to work motifs without purl stitches at centre to give smaller YOs around motifs. Also knit charts 4&5 to omit purl stitches in centre of motifs, turning them from having centres of reverse stockinette to plain stockinette.
