6/1: Worked through row 122, then bound off. Have enough yarn left to have done another row or two but I didn’t know how much yarn the bind off would take. Bound off purlwise with 6mm crochet hook. Blocking now. My pattern enlargement created lots of little points to block out. I love it!

5/24: Have 48 grams of yarn left after completing row 105. Have looked at the end of the chart and think I have figured out how to add 2 more rows to the shawl without too much effort. Will rechart, knit and let you know if it works!

-Have figured out a way to continue to row 120 then repeat as needed!

5/23: after thinking long and hard on how I could enlarge, have decided just to knit to pattern.

5/22: After 4th repeat of chart 3, have 90 grams of yarn left. Based on calculations, would have 20 grams yarn left if knit to pattern.

5/21: Have worked through first repeat of chart 3 and have 130 grams of yarn left.

Chart 3 was much less scary after I figured out I needed to knit the repeat stitches twice on the first time through!
