Monte Carlo is a delicate, luxurious crescent shawl worked from the top down. It is light as air and perfect to wear over a pretty dress for a night out or over a sundress on a cool summer day. Monte Carlo starts with stockinette stitch to allow you to get used to the shaping before you start the lace pattern.

Special stitches
Sk2po: Slip 1 stitch knit wise, knit 2 stitches together, pass the slipped stitch over the k12tog stitch.
Russian bind-off: Knit 2 stitches. (Insert the left needle into the front of those 2 stitches and knit both stitches together or slip both stitches back to the left needle and knit through back loop. This leaves 1 stitch on the right needle. Knit 1). Repeat until the correct number of stitches have been bound off. Once you’ve bound off the required stitches, you will be left with 1 stitch on your right needle. Break the yarn and pull it through this stitch as for a normal bind-off.
