PATTERN NOTES This shawl is knit flat from the top down and begins with a garter tab cast-on. Four stitches are increased every right side row and two stitches are increased every wrong side row. When working in the Garter Stripes Section, do not break yarn at the end of each stripe. Instead, carry the yarn up the side of the work and twist the strands of yarn around one another every color change, taking care not to twist too tightly.
