STITCH EXPLANATION:

s2kp (slip 2 sts-knit next st-pass 2 slipped sts over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle into next 2 sts as if to k2tog, and slip these 2 sts to the right needle.
2. Knit the next st.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the 2 slipped sts (the 2nd and 3rd sts on right needle) up and over the knit st (first st on right needle) and off the needle - you have decreased 2 sts.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.
yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

NOTES:

1. Shawl begins at the center back neck and is shaped by working 6 yarn over (yo) increases on every RS row.
2. Shawl consists of 3 pie-shaped sections, all worked at the same time.
3. Shawl can be worked from the written instructions or by following the charts. If working from charts, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right. Work Rows 1 - 64 of Chart A then and work Rows 65 - 86 by working from Charts B and Chart C simultaneously.
4. If following chart, be sure to refer to written instructions for Row 28 to place markers. The markers are meant to help keep track of your sts. On the following rows, slip markers each time you come to them unless otherwise instructed.
5. Increased sts are incorporated into Lace Pattern on RS rows when there are 9 sts between the first two markers. On these rows, one new rep of the Lace Pattern will be added before and after previously worked Lace Pattern sts.
6. The first and last 2 sts of every row are worked in Garter st (k every row).
7. Larger needles are used only for binding off.
