Have you ever run up that hill to Montmartre? It’s no joke! Even climbing the stairs out of the Métro is hard work. But once you do, you are rewarded with an amazing neighborhood and spectacular views. This crescent shawl, worked sideways, has an array of stitch patterns running along the edge. You won’t want to stop until you reach the top!

Errata: Page 40, Running Up That Hill Pattern, column 3, line 17: Should read “Row 5: 1/2 LC, k2, (1/1 LPT, k1) twice, 1/1”--k1 was written as k only.
Page 41, Chart Key: Knit through the back loop symbol--should be worked on RS; on WS, purl through the back loop.
