Holiday Lights Shawl Designed by Rachel Brockman
This shawl is knit flat from the top down. It begins with a garter tab cast-on. During Sections 1-4 of the shawl, six increases occur every RS row and 2 increases occur every WS row. During Section 5, two increases occur every row (RS and WS). The shawl is finished with mini-fringe alternating between CC1 and CC2.
In this pattern, work all slipped stitches purlwise. Each section is also charted for your convenience.

* Founded in 1948 in Japan, Naito Shoji has a long held tradition of quality. Now, Universal Yarns is proud to bring the no-twist circular needles of Naito Bamboo needles to our customers. We will be offering them exclusively in our kits.
Japan has its own sizing conventions when it comes to crafting. Universal has stickered the card with the closest US equivalent, while the Japanese sizing still imprinted on the needle itself.
