  • This shawl is worked back and forth in rows from the center neck down and outward to the points. A circular needle is used to accommodate a large number of stitches.

  • Rows 19–34 are worked multiple times. Each time through these rows, the number of repeats of the pattern and the stitch counts change. Read the set of numbers that corresponds to the number of times you’ve worked the rows. For example, “k10, make cocoon 1 (2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10) time(s)” means that on the first time through the repeated rows, you make 1 cocoon. On the second time through, you make 2 cocoons. On the last time through, you make 10 cocoons. (This notation is usually used for different sizes in a pattern; in this case, it’s being used for the different repeats.)

  • Carry the main color up the side of the work when not in use and bring it under the contrasting color to begin working with it again.
