Pattern Notes
The body of shawl is worked in color A and the knitted-on
border is worked in color B.

In the Edging Section, on rows starting with BO 3 sts,a regular knitwise bind off was used. Additionally, one stitch remains on the right needle after binding off – this counts as the first stitch that follows the binding off (i.e., it’s the first stitch of the k5 or k8 that follows the binding off).
