Henry's Attic Cascade
2 skeins = 2000.0 yards (1828.8 meters), 454 grams

Cast on 103 stitches using provisional cast on. I’m using ChiaoGoo “lace” stainless steel circular needle which works perfect for this silk thread.

This is the first time I have knitted a lace pattern from a chart. The charts are extremely well designed and all wrong side rows are purl rows.

The edging of this shawl has a scalloped edge, as you can see from the photo above. The pattern transition to the scallop edge begins on Row 17 of Chart 1. Originally, I thought it was a misprint but after a few rows, I could easily see the edge design taking place.

I used stitch markers throughout each row, placing then on either side of the k1tbl and repositioning them when beginning Row 17.

UPDATE: 9/30/18 I just completed the first half using 103 stitches and 5 bells. I’m not happy with the width so now I have cast on 123 stitches for 6 bells and will start the first half again…

11/5/18 completed the first half with 123 stitches/6 bells. I’ll now attempt to transition my provisional cast on to the needle to complete the other side.

Note: After placing the stitches from the provisional cast on onto the needle, I had the wrong side facing me and attached the yarn and did one purl row across BEFORE beginning Row A. This seemed to align the stitch pattern much better. I also put in a lifetime through the provisional cast on stitches I put in the needle.
