  • This shawl is worked back and forth in rows from side to side.
  • Slip stitches purlwise with yarn in back unless indicated otherwise.
  • The color sections are worked using the intarsia method. Join a new strand of yarn for each block of color and twist yarns at each color change to avoid holes.
