The pattern is comprised of 4 clues. Read through each clue thoroughly before beginning to ensure that you are aware of all of the corrections and warnings.
CO 4 sts. k 6 rows. On last row, do not turn work. Rotate work 90 degrees clockwise and pu 6 sts along the edge and cast on of the work – 10 sts total.
25 sts total. Your next row should be a RS row.
Work the following table once.
There is an error in Row 1. See below table for correction.
Row 1 correction: k2, slm, yo, k1, ssk, m1l, p2, k1, yo, slm, k3, m1l, k1, yo, k5, slm, yo, k1, ssk, m1l, p2, k1, yo, slm, k2
45 sts total, separated by markers as follows: 2 – 12 – 6 – 5 – 6 – 12 – 2
Begin with 45 sts from Clue 1.
Work the following table 4 times total.
Just a heads up: the cables in this table are supposed to be different.
If a row is not present, it does not add any new stitches.
+44 sts each repeat
End with 221 sts.
Option 1: work the Transition chart, skip Body part 1, work Body part 2.
Option 2: work the Transition chart, work Body part 1, work fewer repeats of Body part 2.
Begin with 221 sts from Clue 2.
Work table once.
There is an error in Row 7. See below table for correction.
Row 7 is missing a yarn over before the second marker. Work border and edge stitches for Row 7 as you did for Row 5.
Work table once.
Cables in Row 7 should be C6F, then C6B.
Row 4 and 10 — First Edge Section should read: k2, [yo, k2tog] to 2 sts before m, k2, slm.
Row 5 and 11 — First Edge Section should read: k2, yo, k1, [yo, k2tog] to 3 sts before m, k1, yo, k2, yo, slm.
Work table 3 times.
End with 330 sts.
Begin with 330 sts after working Clue 3.
See below if you do not have 330 sts.
If you have extra yarn, you can continue to repeat rows 2-3. You’ll get more exaggerated points.
Bind off as follows: ssk, *[sl 1 st on right needle, k 2 sts together as if to ssk], rpt from * to end
There seems to be some confusion with regards to the stitch count for Clue 3. 330 stitches is what I and my tech editors/sample knitters had at the end of the clue. I haven’t been able to track down the errors in the pattern that are causing people to get different stitch counts. If you don’t have 330 stitches, add the number of stitches you need to get there on the first row of the pattern or take them out. Nobody should be more than 5 stitches or so off.
If you knit the special instructions for people with less than 400 yards, I don’t have stitch counts for you yet. Everyone who had less than 400 yards seems to have gone a different path in terms of repeats, so I can’t possibly calculate all of the permutations. You are partially on your own for Clue #4, but only partially. If you followed the special instructions for less than 400 yards, you will need to have the proper multiple of stitches to make the edging work. The edging only exists to add points to the shawl, so don’t worry if you’re off by a bit. As long as it looks good to you, you’re ok. The stitch pattern used is a multiple of 12 sts, plus extra stitches along the edging.
If you want to make the edging work with a different number of stitches, the points are a multiple of 12 (plus 3 edge stitches on each side). The number of stitches along the edge are negotiable, and you can also adjust the number of stitches in between the double decreases.
There is only one official option for Clue #4. If you want to add more repeat of clue #3 or extend clue #4, you can, but that’s at your discretion and I can’t help you out with that.
These instructions are for the standard edging. This is it! The final clue. There’s nothing else coming at you until the premium version of the pattern is released (includes row-by-row and section stitch counts not available in the KAL).
If you have an odd number of stitches, simply k2tog at the beginning or end of your row or increase 1 (depending on your stitch count). Once you have an even number of stitches, use the info below to help you out.
