Notes

This is my second shawl using this pattern. Notes & pattern edits/translations are as follows:

• there is a row 4 in “set-up” row, before you start “beginning/body of scarf”.

• Set up row translations:
Row 2: K2, P19, K2
Row 4: K2, P23, K2

• Even row translation:
Row 2 and all even rows: K2, P across until last 2 stitches, K2

• at the second repeat of rows 1-22, & third repeat of 1-12, the 11 stitches in the squared off brackets will be repeated as needed.

• there is a Row 22. It’s worked the same as all the other even rows

• Not sure why the designer says gauge is not important… IT IS!!! Knit too tight & this will be too small. Knit too loose & you will run out of yarn (as I did) before you finish all the rows. With 215 yards of Alpaca I made it thru row 12 of the lace border & bind off before running out of yarn.
