Notes: Aurea is worked flat from the centre out, beginning
with a provisional crochet cast-on at the centre line.
One half of the stole is worked first, then the provisional
cast-on is unpicked, live stitches are replaced on working
needles and the second half is worked.
The entire body of the shawl is worked in one stitch
pattern, repeating the same motif, while side edges are
neatly finished with an i-cord edging worked as you go.
