Notes

My second Stonington shawl. A few mods:

  1. For the center diamond, I eliminated all but one line of YO’s in order to make the finished shawl/throw less lacy and more rustic.

  2. I enlarged the whole shawl by making the center diamond larger, increasing all the way to 201 sts before starting the decreases.

  3. Border panels: I picked up 148 sts on each side, increasing to 189 sts.
