This shawl is knit from the bottom up. Stitches are decreased on the right edge every four rows, decreasing to the tip. The bottom edge features seed stitch and transitions into a lovely lace pattern. A decorative edge adorns the side of the shawl, but causes stitch counts to fluctuate throughout the pattern. There will be some decrease rows in which the stitch count remains stable due to increases occurring in the Edging pattern.
We recommend placing markers between each pattern repeat to help you stay on track.
Maintain patterns as established throughout all shawl shaping. If there are not enough stitches to work a yarnover and its corresponding decrease, or enough stitches to complete a Left or Right Twist, work these stitches in Stockinette Stitch instead.
