Ocean Spray Shawl

Ocean Spray is a long triangular shawlette or scarf that is just the right length to wrap around the neck once. Garter stitch is knit to a looser gauge to create a soft cushy fabric that drapes nicely, and the lacy edge provides interest and charm. This shawlette is perfect to wear underneath a coat or as an accent piece in warmer weather.

    Cannot understand repeat of row 32 and 33. Do I repeat chart row 2 and three or do I go to the next rows till I get to 9

    In this instruction the last line of Part ‘A’ , there are 72 stitches on needle not 74 as mentioned, because you are only working up to Row 10—“Work one more repeat up to row 10 of Lace Chart. (74 sts) “. Please verify that I am correct. If I am the first few rows of part ‘B’ also have the wrong number of stitches in brackets.
