The swatching instructions for this shawl mistakenly say to work 40 rows in stockinette stitch when it should say in garter stitch. It won’t be horribly detrimental to your swatch, in terms of seeing how your colors will work together to work it as written, but using garter stitch will keep things consistent with your final work.
