Notes

Following chart order:
Cast on tab without provisional - Ivory
A Ivory with mirrored clear beads (size 1)
A (rows 5-12) x 2 = 16 additional rows
B Grey
A Jet --> Needed to combine 2 sections of black area.
A (rows 5-12) x 3 = 24 additional rows
C Grey
D First two rows of Ivory, then Grey, Jet, Grey, to Ivory.
Bind off -- Ivory using a 5mm crochet hook (US H) with ivory beads (size 10seed)

My plan is to follow the similar steps used in my last shawl. The only difference is using the variegated yarn for the garter tab and not using a provisional cast on.

First sections done. I love how not using the provisional cast on is not detectable. But I’m not thrilled with the blots of olive green appearing in the colorway. I might frog this shawl to find a more neutral yarn.

Decided to use Schachenmayr Tahiti in the Marble colorway, and rewinding the balls so that the ivory/cream color is first. I then casted on and knitted 20 rows of Chart A with another 4 to go as of the taken photo. I am beading the Chart A sections and Bind off.

I finished the knitting part on Friday, the 13th. I really did not want to spend time having to flip each side of the shawl at the bindoff stage. Instead of using a needle for the bind off, I used a crochet hook and inserted a bead within the chain picot stitches.

Finally a day when SlytherBun is out with the Padres. Normally she is good about letting me work, but lately her “Terrible Threes” personality has been a handful.
