This shawl is knit from the top-down using a garter tab cast on. For an elastic bind off, we recommend the suspended bind-off. There are many tutorials available online. Otherwise, be sure to bind off loosely. The shawl is finished with a crochet picot edging.
This pattern is charted and written. If desired, use stitch markers to keep track of pattern repeats.
You can find a blog post featuring a tutorial for the Suspended Bind off here. We also have a tutorial on a Crochet Picot Edging here, but please note that instead of entirely skipping a stitch between picots as directed in the tutorial, you will instead work a slip stitch in the stitch between picots.
In the original pattern, Row 5 of Chart B (written instructions only), two yarnovers were missing. It has been corrected as follows:
Row 5: Yo, k1, * k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k2; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2, yo – 2 sts inc 'd.
There was a discrepancy between the large chart and the broken-down charts in the original pattern. To avoid further confusion, the pattern now only includes the charts as broken down into each section.
There were a few errors in the written instructions. They have been corrected as follows:
Row 11: Yo, k4, * k2, ssk, yo, k7, yo, k2tog, k1; rep from * to last 5 sts, k5, yo – 2 sts inc 'd.
Row 13: Yo, k5, * k3, ssk, yo, k5, yo, k2tog, k2; rep from * to last 6 sts, k6, yo – 2 sts inc 'd.
Row 3: Yo, k1, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k2, * k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k2; rep from * to last 13 sts, k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k3, yo, sl 2-k1-psso, yo, k1, yo – 2 sts inc 'd.
There was an error in Chart A (both written and charted) that has been corrected in the most recent version.
