"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

SHAWL WITH TIES
Measure 10" (25 cm) from each end, place markers.
Pick up and knit 182 sts between markers along long edge of band.
SHAWL WITHOUT TIES
Pick up and knit 181 sts along long edge of band.
Row 1 (WS): Knit across.
Row 2: K3, k2tog, knit to last 5 sts, ssk, k3.
Row 3: K3, *yo, p2tog; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3.
Row 4: K3, k2tog, knit to last 5 sts, ssk, k3.
Repeat these 4 rows until 8 sts remain. Next row: K2, k2tog, ssk, k2. Knit 2 rows. Bind off.

I'm confused. You give the eyelet pattern - 4 rows. Presumably you start this on the 181 stitches picked up on the band. But your instruction do not say this and do not say for how long. Can you please clarify. Thanks Angela

It actually says to repeat the 4 rows until you have just 8 stitches left on the very last line of the pattern and instructions of what to do with the last 8 stitches.

I love the look of this shawl and I would really like to make it, but I was just wondering which part I should start with. The band or the eyelet pattern?
Nov 17, 2019
You must start with the band, you cannot proceed in the pattern without the band, because that is where you are picking up the stitches from.

What a pretty shawl! I like the option of having ties or not having ties. I don't enjoy having to pick up stitches, but I think I could accomplish the same thing by just casting off stitches on each end to reduce the number of stitches rather than casting off and then picking up stitches. Any thoughts on whether that would work as well?

That couldn't possibly work with the design of this shawl, this pattern only works because you are making the band first, there is no way with a cast on of 5 stitches you could do it the way you are thinking. the pattern working out is dependent on the band being done first.
