ll Notes and Tips ll

The Public Side of the Shawl is the Purl side. However, for ease of use, the pattern is written and worked with the Knit side as RS.

All ICDD will “Stack” = the center stitch of the ICDD remains situated ~ stacks ~ along the same column.

These scales are not only dimensional but overlap a bit and flex like armor plates.

The directional YO closures and the inverse cdd will seem tedious and fiddly at first, like most new techniques. Remember learning cables? But you will get used to them.

You do need to pay attention to your knitting, but it has a logical progression.
