Notes: Shawl begins with a striped garter tab and is then worked from the top down in 2-row stripes. Each row of the Chart represents 2 rows of knitting – one right side and one wrong side. Work each row of the chart once from right to left, then once from left to right. Rows 25-72 of Slipped Triangle Pattern may be repeated as many or as few times as desired. Increasing the number of repeats will, of course, require more yarn. Do not break yarn between colour changes. Carry the yarn not in use loosely up the side of the shawl. Slip stitches as follows: On RS rows slip the stitches purlwise with yarn in back and on WS rows slip purlwise with yarn in front to ensure the ‘floats’ of the slipped stitches are all on the WS of the shawl.
