Notes

Despite many comments about how small this comes up, I knitted to pattern for a kerchief as opposed to a larger shawl. Even so, I had my doubts about the finished size as Tosh Vintage doesn’t seem as giving as other Tosh weights. However, once it was soaked I blocked the heck out of it and ended up with a perfect size. It also feels beautifully silky soft too.

One thing I would point out is that for anyone using stitch markers to help with the charts, they will only be useful for Chart A. By about row 4 or 5 of Chart B, the markers will be off by one stitch and therefore no use. However, by that stage you will have grasped the pattern so this isn’t such a problem.

Love this shawl. Love this yarn. Love this colour!
