NOTES

  • This asymmetrical shawl is worked from one point to the opposite long edge.
  • When a color is unused for only a few rows, carry it up the side of the work and bring it under the other color to begin working with it again. Break the yarn at the end of a stripe if that color will not be used for more than four rows.
  • A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
  • Slip stitches purlwise with yarn in back.
