Gauge 15 sts and 26 rows = 4” in lace pattern. Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but a change in gauge may result in different finished size and yarn requirements.
The shawl is knit sideways, on the bias. Instructions are for the scarf, with numbers for the long scarf and wrap in parenthesis. The lace stitch pattern forms undulating segments of colour broken by stripes of the contrast colour. This is achieved by working Rows 1 to 14, rows 17 to 30 and rows 33 to 46 with the main colours of the Biscotte-Mini yarn set (labeled MC1 through MC8), and working Rows 15, 16, 31, 32, 47 and 48 with the contrast colour (CC).
The stitch patterns may be worked from chart or written instructions.
