This piece is worked from the top down. It is similar to a top down triangle-shaped shawl. But in addition to 2 increased stitches at the center on each RS row, there are also 2 stitches increased on each side instead of just 1, making 6 increased stitches every RS row. This gives the shawlette a flowing, generous shape.

After working the first 2 rows, place a removable marker on the center stitch. Move this marker up every RS row to keep track of the center of the Shawlette.

The Phantom edging is worked as a knit-on edging. After the Shawlette Body is complete, stitches are cast on for the edging. The edging is worked sideways and the Body stitches are bound off at the same time. At the end of every right side row, the last Edging stitch is knit together with the next Body stitch, thereby binding off 1 stitch.

There was a mistake in the text instructions for row 15 of the Body Lace pattern. This is how row 15 should read:
Row 15: K2, yo, k1, yo, k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k1, m1, k1, yo, k3tog, yo, k1, m1, k1, yo, k3tog, yo, k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k5, yo, k1, yo, k2 – 6 sts inc’d.

The chart is correct. The text instructions have been updated in the most current version of this pdf that is available (4/03/2015)
