GAUGE:
12 sts + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
shell (2 tr, ch 1, 2 tr) in indicated ch-sp.

NOTES:
1.

Shawl is worked back and forth in rows beginning at center back neck.

2.

Stitches are increased at the beg and end of each row and on either side of the center back point.

3.

A marker is placed to indicate the center back point.

Each time a row is worked, move the marker up to the new center back point.

If the new center point is a ch-1 sp, place the marker in the ch-1 sp.

If the new center point is a 2-tr, place the marker in the space between the center 2 tr sts.
