Garden State Sherp Festival

Pattern reads “stitch marker required” but never indicates where to place it. I used 2 stitch markers. I placed one between the top edge section & the center section and one between the center section & the sharks tooth section. I did this before starting the “widening” instructions.

MOD: I am making the body (center section) in garter stitch rather than stocking knit. Reasons: 1) I think it matches the sharks tooth section better. 2) it makes the shawl reversible (pretty & the same on both sides).
Starting with the “widening” section I changed row 2 in the “center section” to “All even rows, KNIT to marker”.

WISH: I wish the designer didn’t break up the written instructions for top edge, center & sharks tooth. It would be so much easier to read if each of these things was included in the same row of instructions (like she did the chart & on the “Final Point” section). As is, you need to bounce your eyes all over the page.

Oct 27:
Widening section complete.
Dental floss life line placed.
Loving how the yarn & pattern are working in harmony.

Oct 30:
Half way done. Loving how it’s working up.

Nov. 1:
Not happy with how it ends in a big chunky squared off end… so improvising to make the final point a point.

Nov 2:
Finished & blocking.
