Obsessed! This is so much fun to knit and I am loving the Casbah, which feels amazing in this soft and squishy garter stitch.


  • As Linda points out, to get the stitch counts at the rates listed in the pattern, you have to knit four edge rows for every two body rows (opposite to what the pattern says). This is also much easier, since it means you don’t have to start a short-row with a yarn-over.
  • At this rate, you gain 13 stitches for each repeat of edge chart.

Increase section used 17g.

Three repeats into body section C, skein weighs 69g, so I’m pretty sure I can do an extra repeat before starting decreases.

Finished with about 1 yd of yarn left! I ended up doing nine chart repeats in the body of the shawl, for a total of 15 repeats.
