Shetland Garden Faroese Shawl...A garden of lacy delights.

This top-down Faroese shaped shawl features a garden of lacy delights: marguerite daisies, Shetland ferns and Shetland leaves fall gracefully over the shoulders, while rose trellises adorn the bottom border. Although the shawl is designed for fingering weight yarn, other yarn weights can be used, resulting in a smaller or larger garment. Pattern is charted and consists of 8 pages.

On Page 2 under “Begin Charts”, the row designations are incorrect for Charts A and B. They should be written: “Work Rows 8 - 29 as follows…” (for Chart A) and “Work Rows 30 - 49 as follows…” (for Chart B).

Also on page 2, under “Begin Charts”, paragraph 4 should read:
Work Rows 50 - 73 as follows: syif, k2, pm, Chart C, center stitch, Chart C reversed, pm, Center Panel Chart, pm, Chart C, center stitch, Chart C reversed, pm, k3. When reversing Chart C, do not reverse decreases, but knit exactly as indicated. NOTE: On Rows 52 and 72 of Chart C, work a k2tog decrease after center yarnover stitch.

In paragraph 5, the note beginning “On Row 80 of Chart D…” should be omitted.

In some early versions of the pattern, Chart G is missing one symbol on Row 134 (1st row of chart). Also, There should be a symbol for “slip1, k2tog, psso” in the 4th square from the left, between two yarnover symbols. It should be a mirror image to the right hand side of the chart.

In Chart G, there are 19 repeats of the rose trellis lace pattern, not 18 as stated.
