This pattern uses a garter tab cast-on in order to keep a solid line of garter stitch as the top-edge border of the shawl. This cast-on can feel fiddly the first few times you use it, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll love it for both its puzzle-like nature and for its tidy look on finishing.

In the striped sections, the yarns are carried up the sides of the shawl, but you will clip the solid yarns between garter sections. If you try to carry the solid yarn up the edge of the shawl, you will see blips of the other yarn at the edge.

In the last garter stitch section of the shawl, the ombré yarn will run out. It will run out on different rows for different knitters, depending on your gauge / knitting tension. At this point (whichever row it is) you will simply spit splice the end of the solid ball of yarn to the tail of the ombré yarn and continue to the end of the pattern. Note: if you’re using a different yarn, one that is superwash, do NOT splice the two ends, as it won’t be secure. Join in your usual manner in that situation.
