Notes

Since I opted for worsted weight yarn, I should have gone up a size or two on needles for more drape (and larger size) but I used the size needles I prefer for worsted and garter stitch. The shawlette makes a nice warm cowl wrapped with the widest point in the front and the ends wrapped around the neck and tucked under.

This was my first Premier Sweet Roll. It had one knot in the second section of the lightest color. The knot may have made a difference in the size of the section but not the gradations in color. This was acceptable and I am not disappointed like I was with the Caron Cake which completely changed the order and size of the color blocks.

I am still on a quest for the perfect crescent shawl to wear with a lovely purple shawl pin.

Pattern Mods: No picot bind-off (I didn’t allow enough)

Only two repeats of the lace sections between garter stitch sections except for the last, one repeat so I could have enough for some garter rows for a firm edge that doesn’t roll

There are 16 garter ridges between lace sections to end up with an even amount of stitches required by the lace pattern repeat

The first section of garter stitch was not planned except that I end with an even number of stitches.

I did a slip stitch edge at the end of each row.
