Notes

Had to do the math before starting this. Also had to look thru the finished projects & check out everyones notes.

I want my owl shawl to be more of a neck shawlette.

My numbers:
Owls: 25
Stitches before increases: 204 (200 + 4 edges stitches)
Stitches after increases: 306 (300 + 4 edge stitches & 2 yo)
Cast on edge to beginning of owls: 6.5 inches
Beads: 50 6/0 Czech glass natural beads

I wanted to continue the look of the edge stitches into the owl section of the scarf, so keeping the K2 yo on every row of each edge.

Unblocked measurements: 50” x 10”
