  1. Shawl is knit from center outward in four equal segments. Change from dpn to increasingly longer circular needles as number of sts permits. After shawl is made, the sideways edging is attached as it is worked.
  2. Before rnd 39, chart indicates odd rnds only. Knit all sts on even rnds 2-38. After rnd 39, work chart for all rnds.
  3. It may be helpful to mark beginnings of sections.
  4. Shift the beginning of rnd as indicated on chart.
  5. See Techniques, p. 162, for circular beginnings, invisible cast-on, and grafting.
