This shawl is worked from the top down, with increases on every fourth row to form a half-circle shape. The lace pattern is given in chart form only. The shawl used nearly all of the two hanks indicated in the supplies list, with no additional yardage for swatching. It may be advisable to purchase an extra hank of yarn to ensure there is enough to complete the shawl. The pattern for the shawl has been broken down into three smaller charts to make it easier to read. A full pattern chart has also been included for those working from electronic media, who may wish to work with one chart.
