I am using a trick to keep track on which side I am on. I attached different tips to my knitpicks cable (see photo) so I know every time the rosewood needle tip is my working needle I am on the right side of the shawl and it’s time to increase, since at this point it is knitted in garter stitch this is a nice and easy way to do it without too much thought.
I got a little mixed up between 4mm needles and US size 4, because I had just finished the Francine wrap on 4mm needles and when I read this pattern calls for 4, I used those without giving it any more thought. Alas, I should have used US size 4 and am using US size 6 now. It looks OK, perhaps a little lighter, looser.
Doing the bind-off now which I absolutely love. It’s the first time I am doing a sewn bind off, but it goes perfectly with this pattern.
This scarf is very versatile; there are so many ways to wear it :)
