I find it much easier to knit this using stitch markers. Right side there will be 3 stitches then a marker. Next place a marker every 12 stitches until the last one where there will only be 4 stitches at the end. This is right and there will always only be 3 at the beginning on the right side and 4 at the end.
The only exception with the markers will be on Row 21 where you’ll have to slip the stitch before each marker to make the sk2po’s. You’ll be slipping the slip stitch before the marker up and over the marker and the k2tog of the sk2po. Do this all the way to the last marker where you’ll be slipping that last stitch before the last marker and lifting it up and over the marker and the knit stitch of that last skpo.
It will seem like your stitch count between the markers after this row would be wrong, but it won’t be. Even though you have to do this for that one row, it still makes it easier to knit and keep track using the markers. JMHO
Now my only hope is that I’ll have enough in this skein of yarn (as I only could afford ONE!) to get at least 60” of length. UPDATE: I only had enough for 50” but it seems to be enough to wrap nicely for a shawl.
I added flowers that I just made up. I didn’t follow the pattern. It takes forever to add them! I still need to add 7 more on each end and will do that later. I just wanted to get it completed enough to show it off at my knit meetup group.
Flower UPDATE: I purchased pre-made flowers on etsy from Card Inspired and added them to the ends with the Little Flowers skein of yarn I have had forever and it was the perfect color!
Well written pattern and gorgeous design!
