There is nothing quite like a soothing, understated project. Written for two sizes, the Large version could double as a luxurious blanket and the smaller size is perfect for everyday wear. This body of the shawl is comprised mostly of a sea of seed stitch. Increases along the outer edges. It is constructed sideways from tip to tip, beginning and ending with just one stitch. The shawl is then finished with a more challenging applied lace border.
On rows 2 and 6 of Chain Lace Edging, the k2tog's are worked using the second loop of the double yarn over (from the previous row) and the following knit stitch.
Slip all stitches purlwise.

There were errors in the Chain Lace Edging written instructions that did not match the chart. Those changes have been made to correctly match the chart.
Row 2 of the Edging section had a typo to correctly read: "Sl 1 wyib, work Row 2 of Chain Lace patt, turn work– 1 edge st consumed."
There was an error in the decrease section of the pattern. In the previous version, it stated to repeat Rows 1-20. It has been corrected to say to repeat Rows 1-2.
