Errata: After the 42 rows of the chart are completed, knit 2 rows (not one), ending after a WS row. This has been updated in v2 of the individual pattern and Knitting Maine e-book.

Autumn often brings with it a chilly breeze. The lacy leaf and cable pattern and dropped stitches on the Northport Shawl reflect the freshly fallen leaves blowing in the wind. Wrap it over your shoulders and around your neck to keep warm.
