In addition to the pattern, you need the following materials to knit the Empire shawl pattern:
GAUGE: 24 sts = 10 cm in garter stitch after blocking.
FINISH MEASURMENT: .
When working rectangular patterns, a 2nd ball of your main color should be added at the end of the first row. To create this little ball of yarn, use the other end of your ball of yarn; you will need approximathly75 cm/ 30 "yarn.
When you have to change color in a row, make sure to cross the yarns on the back of the work (as in the Intarsia technique)
When working sections with rectangular patterns and EMPIRE patterns, you will be asked to slip stitches. These stitches are always slipped purlwise, placing the yarn behind work for RS rows and in front work for WS rows. Also, make sure not to tighten your work too much when you slip the stitches: this will result in a gathered effect of the work which is not desired.
