  • This shawl is constructed in a crescent shape and worked flat. Written instructions are provided for the entirety of the shawl.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
  • Slipped stitches are slipped knitwise on the WS of the work and purlwise on the RS of the work.
  • To save on yardage it is recommended to carry the colors loosely up the side of the work rather than breaking at each color change.
  • This shawl best fits a 40” circular needle however the user may substitute longer or shorter needles for comfort.
  • Although gauge is not critical for this project, a looser gauge than noted will result in the use of more yardage.
