A little note about the construction:
To reduce the amount of finishing for the shawl, all the edgings are knitted with the main body ofthe garment so there is nothing to add once you’ve finished. To enable this, you will need to havetwo balls of the main colour on the go at once.One (MC2) will only be used for the four-stitch edging at the left hand side of the shawl. If you don’t do this you’ll quickly discover that the MC is at the wrong end of your work half the time which is a little inconvenient!
It will be in use for the whole knit and handily, one ball is plenty for this edge. It’s slightly annoying having an extra ball onthe go, but not as annoying as having to add an i-cord or some other edging at the end.
The colourwork is all slip stitched so no stranding which,let’s face it, is a relief!
