Ravelry users:


Lace Band Chart is missing wrong side row numbers. Border Chart Row 23 is missing a slip-stitch symbol. Note for slip-stitch symbol erroneously states to slip stitch knitwise. Stitch should be slipped purlwise.

Page 3, under “Lace Border,” beginning paragraphs should read:
NOTE: Lace border is knitted sideways to the shoulderette body.

To start, transfer the last knitted stitch of the shawl to a double point needle and cast on one additional stitch by backwards loop method.

From this point, the rows are made by turning this needle. WS rows are knit away from the shoulderette and begin with slipping 1 stitch purlwise. RS rows are knit toward the shoulderette and are ended by knitting one stitch of the border with one stitch of the shawl (k2tog).
