Pattern Notes

Shawl begins at one end and is shaped asymmetrically with decreases at the beginning of each RS row and increases at the end of each RS row and the beginning of each WS row. Pattern maximizes the skein yardage; allow for additional yardage if stitch and row gauge are larger than pattern gauge.

The Eyelet Pattern can be worked from the written instruction or chart.
